I see. It has to do with the "feather and ball experiment" Apollo did, and what a vacuum is when all objects fall at the same speed when there is no atmosphere. The person inside is supposed to fall at the same speed that the entire 400-something US ton dense ship does. Feather and ball. In this case, the feather (person) is inside a pressurized hollow ball (I$$).
Still, it brings up a different odd NASA catch-22. Very psychological. There's supposed to be a pressurized atmosphere inside the I$$, is there not? If that were even achievable without the whole thing bursting (and let's say for the sake of argument that it is a "tight ship", portholes and all), gravity should be acting just about the same as it does on the entire Earth - except if the Earth were inverted with atmosphere encased. This means the I$$ also serves the NASA argument that the Earth is (and can be) spinning and orbiting and careening about a "solar system" with virtually no effects felt on atmosphere on Earth.
I feel like they are taking the piss on this, because if the Earth is not spinning but they claim it is, they can easily argue that the math of their science we can't so easily test (such as what the Earth is actually doing) is solid. In other words, the I$$ stories and videos specifically reinforce the science/math of Earth's motions.
The official story is:
- the Earth is spinning, but the atmosphere is 'glued' on every level with gravity due to zero friction through outer space
- so the ISS can achieve a simulation of the same, whereby the pressure of the ship's body alone contains the 1-atmosphere and the entire thing falls together at the same speed
Once again, it seems like the I$$ hoax has a particular purpose in explaining/excusing our cosmology while not actually conceptually testing its assumptions
If the Earth were really not spinning (it seems it isn't), it would be the basis for argumentative hypotheses that a spinning Earth would cause some problems with carrying an atmosphere. We can't test the conditions of the Earth spinning if it's not spinning. Hence, we can't test the conditions of the "control sample" of the Earth (the I$$), which assumes it is. It's once again an elitist mathematics fantasy stacked on untestable physics we are taught to believe and the NASA priests own.
It doesn't argue specifically for
a spinning/moving Earth but revels and celebrates in our ignorance of the facts — specifically, that perhaps it does not and we embrace the I$$ lie despite that.
Come to think of it, has the ship's exit been explained for space walks and repairs? That is, the manner in which an astronaut leaves the 1-atmosphere pressure to empty space? How is an exit area depressurized, for example? Typical pumps like we have on Earth? Has NASA prepared a video on this, as well?
