a delightful bookweasel for ash!
i had to check in with laz the professional rocket scientist (no, really!) before doing this page. but here’s the shortest physics blurb ever!
objects moving through space can use the gravity of other objects to increase or decrease speed. going between the gas giant and her moon, while both are rotating in mirror to eachother, creates a huge boost of speed for the shard (which is what i had theorized, i just needed to check with laz haha). the shard’s mass ensures she’s going to go faster than the drakia plane because of that too!
but all that mass works against them cause if they want to change course to follow the smaller ship they’ll loose like, all that speed. and the littler ship can zigzag all over til it gets away so that’s a terrible situation to be in.
ITS NEAT :D
and lesse patrons have had emails about their rewards this month. so if you want art commissions from me once a month for as little as 1$ per comic page, perhaps become a patron!
