Do you learn with SE & its community?

SE, in my experience, has been the tool that best represents the scale and size of the universe. Most people learn about the solar system with a map similar to this: http://giantsandpilgrims.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/solar-system4.png These diagrams do not represent distances and scale correctl...

12464 I always interpreted that to mean that if you turned on the field without an initial velocity, you simply wouldn't move.

New planet classification
