For an object to escape Earth’s velocity, it needs to be traveling at approximately 25,000 mph, or almost seven miles a second.
The amount of energy required to reach that speed is astounding, and it depends on a lot of factors. The equations used to send rockets into space are tremendously complex.
Don’t tell that to this little Bro, though, who thinks he knows what it takes. His barreling pell mell down a hill. Forget for a moment that he runs out of steam toward the end and basically accomplishes nothing. It’s beautiful, regardless, the way his little mind works.
I’ve watched this five times already.
