That's just as good as a university physics textbook.

The last one I looked at said that the Moon is constantly falling toward Earth, but missing.

They don't explain why it is not accelerating.

And they don't point out that due to its tendency toward rectilinear motion, it is always flying off into outer space, but missing.

But I guess I'm just jabbering again. I think it's that stupid virus I caught from attending a seminar on an aspect of QM at McMaster U.
