I have just heard that a Japanese Astronaut on the Space Shuttle Endeavor, has proved that a boomerang does come back in space. Now if Stephen Hawking's "A Brief History 0f Time", had included such information I might have been able to read past the first half (well page 1 to be honest). This throws (sorry) up a number of questions.
If you were orbiting the earth in one direction and threw the boomerang in the opposite direction, would you meet yourself coming back? If said boomerang was thrown into a black hole, would Relativety Therory mean it return with an infinite mass ? Would an infinite mass boomerang be quite tricky to catch? Is Relativity Theory ,just relative? Was my 2 years of Physics a waste of Taxpayers money? (Please do not answer) What an inconvenient week for Arthur C Clarke to pass away.
