Escape from a Kuiper Belt Object
Escape from a Kuiper Belt Object
In this activity, you will need to determine just the right speed required to escape from a Kuiper Belt Object. You will be guiding the remotely programmed ship known as "The Unstoppable Mike Brown" off of the Kuiper Belt Object it has been visiting. You want to give the ship just enough velocity that it will escape from this object. Giving it too little velocity will result in it returning to the object and giving it too much velocity will result in a waste of energy.
