It’s Okay To Be Smart Explores the Physics of Space Battles and Explains Why Movies Get It Wrong

It’s Okay To Be Smart (see previously) explores the physics of space battles in their latest episode. Host Joe Hanson plays both the role of a space fighter pilot and his spiritual guide to explain the limitations of Newtonian physics on spaceflight, and how that translates to limitations on space battles. The episode looks at how ships might maneuver in space, and how different types of weapons would or would not work. It even questions whether or not warfare has a future in space.
