Quite Frankly  'Physics, Star Wars, and Ron Paul' 1/20/16

Quite Frankly 'Physics, Star Wars, and Ron Paul' 1/20/16

In this episode, we jump into some interesting topics regarding the physics of air travel—and travel in general—on the rotating sphere we call Earth, or Home. When a Saudi Prince made the comment about why a an aircraft on its way to China doesn't simple need to hover in place until China arrives, by way of planetary revolution, we thought it was a pretty valid question.

So we defer to the pros! Between a suggested youtube video and subsequent commentary by resident astronomer, Ancaporado, we were able to put this this one to bed.

We then move on to Star Wars, the Oscars being hilariously dominated by white nominees for the second year in a row, and recent comments from Ron Paul on the current state of Election 2016.
