I recently posted a blog where I brought into question how it is not possible to have any form of space exploration in deep space based on one simple fact. You can’t generate momentum in a vacuum. You just can’t. Click here to read the blog that I posted on that topic. Today’s post is a reflection on this idea after having stumbles across a few Youtube videos where people are trying out various tests in homemade vacuum chambers. And guess what; the results are pretty much exactly what I expected. But hey, rather than rant about it… take a look for yourself.
Video one is based on atmospheric propulsion.
Video two is a different guy trying out a wide range of propulsion powers both in the atmosphere and in the chamber. I couldn’t help but smile.
Space exploration is not possible people.
