Nope, as geometry was not my favourite subject, and writing in a different language does not help.

Alright, I'll try again. Here is another analogy.

  • Find a tall oak tree that is standing alone in a large level meadow.
  • Make a temporary mark on the tree's trunk about 6 feet above eye level. Perhaps you might tie a yellow ribbon around a branch near the trunk.
  • Stand on the ground about two feet from the trunk.
  • Measure the angle above eye level to the mark.
  • Stand on the ground about two-hundred feet from the trunk.
  • Measure the angle above eye level to the mark.
  • Note that the angles differ.


Your head--Satellite--ISS camera
Mark on trunk--North Pole--horizon

The angle varies in all of the three cases. Yes, it will vary less in the last case, as the ISS does a good, but not perfect, job of keeping the same side pointed down to Earth.

I hope that helps.
Keep it serious, Thork. You can troll, but don't be so open. We have standards

What's the current debate here? I'm not following this very well at all now. All I saw was a very simple video. Who is saying what about it? And who is saying they're wrong?

Apparently they have derailed it to a Conservation of Momentum/Vectorial discussion. I still donŽt get the point. Can some FEŽer prove the video to be wrong/false?. I guess they canŽt.

Can anyone else see the stars, or at least what look like stars, in that video?

Mizuki x

Still posting after you got owned about going to the moon huh? Sad sad sad.
The FAQ needs updating to reflect the falsehood of the FAQ.

Looks like you were right.
