madimpossibledreamer: Jiraiya|Yosuke jumping and using a throwing star (jiraiya|yosuke)
I actually geeked out about this in my physics class. One with an actually good teacher who'd do a demonstration and nerd out about it and do awesome/dumb things like try to propel himself across the room in a rolling chair using a fire extinguisher.  (I'm kind of bummed I wasn't there for that.  Reports say that it didn't really work, unfortunately.  You could probably get it to work with one of those big pressurized gas tanks but that's also super dangerous/flammable, so don't try that at home.  If necessary for your continued existence, do it with supervision and lab safety equipment.)
Also if you have not watched Babylon 5 and like story arc science fiction, do yourself a favor and watch it.  Fun fact: JMS originally pitched it to people who turned it down and then turned around and made Deep Space Nine.  Babylon 5 is a lot better because it's written by the guy who originally had the idea, and, you know, didn't steal it.
And, you know, you'll see all kinds of episodes.  Stick around long enough and there will be Space Rangers.  And.  Just do yourself a favor, watch it before I gush about it, okay?

         Xander didn’t think there was any way that Babylon 5 could get better, but he notices, the next time he watches it, that the physics is right.  That the Starfuries actually work the way they would, moving around space, and that there’s no sound because there’s no atmosphere to carry it, and that the gravity in the station is generated in a way that actually makes realistic sense, and he nerds out and dissects a bunch of scenes and forgets to go to school entirely.
         To be fair, he was still learning more Physics than they’d teach at Sunnydale High.
