A4_5 Ground Control to Major Steven

Emma Miriam Thomas, Kerry Marie Ballantine, Christopher Thomas Pain, Katherine Esther Ward


We investigated the resultant velocity that Steven from Steven Universe would be accelerated to due to an explosive decompression within a “Moon base”, and if his velocity would cause him to be ejected out into the solar system. Using fluid dynamics and the conservation of momentum, we found Steven's outward velocity to be 96% smaller than the escape velocity and hence would not escape the gravitational influence of the Moon.
