wrong. the person would hit terminal velocity due to wind resistance and stop accelerating, hit the core, then decelerate to zero far from grabbing distance.

What a fantastic episode! This Joe Biden sounding guy could replace Neil and we would be better for it. No forced laughing, no trying to sound smart and deep when explaining mundane things, much better jokes and he even treats Chuck better. To more episodes like this 👍

This lady is a massive quack and should not be on a science based podcast. What she spouts is pseudoscience, at best.

This lady is blatantly incorrect about PFAS in the human body, they go through the body without interacting and come out. They do not get stuck in the body. This is proven via finding them in everyones feces and urine when tested.

What would aliens think of our inventions? "They leave their gravitational field by farting combusted gases out one end of their vehicle, which then separates in two with the larger piece falling back to their planet to its destruction? What uncouth brutes!"

So Martians are made of Mars material, and Moonians are made of Moon materials, and Jupiterians are made of Jupiter materials. ??? 💁🏿‍♀️🤔
