    What is the distance between each sphere?

    1 foot? 1 mile? 1,000,000 miles?

    Not that it makes any difference as the sun would melt whatever you use. :LOL:

    So painful it's like pulling teeth! 6.28 feet is the answer regardless of the size of the object! Mistress insomnia strikes yet again!

    Have I got this right?

    A rope is formed into a circle around the circumference of each object?

    This is trivial.
    Radius is R
    CIrcumference C is 2 x pi x R
    SO the difference in C is 2 x pi x 2 feet
    which is near enough a couple of metres.
    Or 6.28 feet.

    Can I ask one??

    The acceleration of an astronaut in a Saturn 5 (moonmission) rocket is about 3g. They reckoned that's about all one could stand, for the period.
    So, ignoring relativistic effects (for now) how long would it take him to get to half the speed of light?

    I can do it in my head and I'm only a plumber, so you should be able to too. (hint, take g as 10 m/s/s)


    Or, if arethmatriculation isn't your thing, but keeping it astral, what's earth's nearest star?
