How many football fields is the sun?
Note that that is about 3 times the diameter of Earth. Arranging our football fields edge to edge into a disk shape with a diameter of 44,000 km will cover 6 billion km2 and will require 1.1 trillion football fields if they are constructed at or near the sun.
How far can a football be thrown on the moon?
That would have amazing effects: What might be a neat 60 m cross on Earth could easily turn into a 350 meter volley up on the moon. The ball could reach a height of 50 meters – and it would stay up in the air much longer.
How many football field is the ISS?
Yes, that’s right! The International Space Station measures 357 feet end-to-end. That’s almost equivalent to the length of a football field including the end zones (360 feet).
Can you throw a ball on Mars?
Pitchers cannot throw curve balls on Mars. Usually the threads on the spinning ball throw air to the side and make the ball curve by what is known as the Magnus effect. The air on mars is 100 times less dense than the air on earth so the spinning ball gets little thrust from the little air it deflects.
Can you throw a rock from the moon to Earth?
If you were on the moon could you throw a rock hard enough for it to either escape the moon’s gravity or enter into orbit around it? Plugging in the numbers and solving for v yields: 2372 m/s, or 5319mph. So unless you can throw a five-thousand-mile-per-hour fastball, no.
What is the farthest someone has thrown a football?
In 1983 Raiders player Jim Plunkett threw a 99-yard touchdown pass, the longest in NFL history.
Do astronauts get paid?

Has anyone floated away in space?
The STS-41B was launched on February 3, 1984. Four days later, on February 7, McCandless stepped out of the space shuttle Challenger into nothingness. As he moved away from the spacecraft, he floated freely without any earthly anchor.
Can you play football in space?
Astronauts Play Football in Zero Gravity to Celebrate World Cup. The World Cup has kicked off and to celebrate, three astronauts play football in the International Space Station. Although there are only three currently on mission, playing in zero gravity makes the game significantly more difficult.
