Your velocity is off by an order of magnitude. (.16*40)/75=.085, not .85.
(I worked the maths myself. Also made the same exact mistake one time when I accidentally divided by 7.5)
Assuming that the ball doesn’t lose speed (since this is in a vacuum it doesn’t really have anything to slow it down) but returns after bouncing off at the same speed it left his hand, and my vague recollection that for an inelastic collision the final velocity can be calculated by dividing the sum of the objects momentum by their combined mass, the Doctor’s velocity after catching the ball will be about .16 m/s
Except I’m not good at physics so no clue if that’s a correct use
Ack sorry that’s what I get for doing maths at 2AM. Thank you.
So 0.16 m/s = ~ 9.6 meters per minute. It’s hard to tell in the gif above, but it looks to me like he wasn’t more than 9 meters from the TARDIS, and probably somewhat less.
… I can’t figure out how much speed the ball loses on the rebound. I feel like it should be imparting some of its kinetic energy to the spaceship when they collide, although the spaceship is so much more massive that it’s not going to budge very much from such a tiny tap.
I used this page of physics problems for the MV = MV formula, which I didn’t know. (The formula was given specifically to calculate the velocity of an astronaut throwing something while spacewalking.)
EEEEEEEEEEE THANK YOU

(I love the way you drew Chariklo’s ring in shadow — you did the entire setting, not just the Doctor catching Nyssa — that is so amazing!)

Does it count as adricpocalypse if it’s apparently an ACTUAL THING? o___o
it’s….life-size…..lord help us
