I really love physics, but even physics doesn't have all the answers. In space, or anywhere for that matter, movement is only a perception, and as the old saying goes, "perception is everything." If you believe you are moving forward, well, then you are. At least that's what you would believe. If you are floating/moving forward, and at a fast rate in space, you say, "I am moving forward", but what happens if you quickly twist your body around and are now facing backwards, (or so it would seem) your body will continue to move in the original direction, but now your perception will tell you that you are now moving backwards. So which is it? You cannot even answer that question.

You cannot feel movement in space, and the only reason you can feel it here on earth is because of gravity.

My roundish spherical brain has just lit up into neuronic splitfire at the suggestion of this question you have posed. :scream:

The answer is that there is no movement. Only the perception of it. Some things can never be explained, but we know they are true. We know they are real. We don't always know how or why we know. We just know they are. Sometimes we get to peek behind the magician's curtain.
