Jumping in Space

Solomon asked, Do small jumps take more gravity than big jumps? And we talked about the relationship between jump size and gravity. He asked, what about if you jump in space? I said, Then you’ll jump forever, you’ll never come down. Solomon said, What if you die? I said, You’ll still keep going. Solomon said, “What about if you’re a kid? Do kids take more time to get up there? Because adults have to put a ladder on top of their heads?” At that point we had gone beyond my level of expertise.
