Newtonian physics are geared here for the uninitiated through clever comparisons and illustration drawn from familiar experience. The implications of Newtonian physics for travel in outer space are clarified and some conceivable solutions to the problems are presented. Lucid explanation and helpful examples demonstrate centripetal and centrifugal force, lifting, force, action and reaction, the interaction of planetal gravities, and credit astronomy's contribution to man's knowledge of the cosmos.
