Why Are Astronauts Weightless?

In this segment, the Veritasium guy asks why astronauts inwards the infinite station are weightless. The most mutual respond is because at that spot is no gravity inwards space. But of cast at that spot is gravity inwards space, peculiarly where the infinite station is located (only most 400km from Earth’s surface). So astronauts all the same sense a gravitational delineate – it’s only that they as well as the infinite station are inwards complimentary autumn as well as thus they are accelerating together towards the Earth. The infinite station doesn’t crash into the globe because of its orbital velocity – it’s going 28,000 km/h as well as thus equally it falls, the globe curves away from it.
