I had to disable Jetpack because it wasn’t letting people post comments. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Rear Admiraless Josh asks
In The Empire Strikes Back, there’s a bit where the Falcon goes into an asteroid field pursued by a bunch of TIE fighters, and they have to avoid a load of rocks flying around very fast in close proximity. It’s what a lot of people think of asteroid fields as being like, but logically that’s can’t be right, as the rocks would just bash each other into sand over the course of a couple of centuries. So what is the inside of an asteroid field really like? What is the largest thing you can swing around while reasonably expecting not to hit anything?
Ooooh, “rocks just bash each other into sand over the course of a couple of centuries” is so close, and yet so far.
