Asked by: Glenn Hawkins
Subject: .
Question: Hello Harrold,

This should have been corrected long ago. I put it off. The disagreement: Two rockets in space, one pushing the side of the other
I know your perception was that one of the rockets was aligned at 180 degrees at the center of mass of the other. This makes your assessment correct. The two would proceed at an oblique angle.

My perception was that one rocket placed forward to the center of mass would make my assessment correct. The two rockets would rotate in space.

I accept the error in that I did not pacifically state my placement of one to the other, and I was wrong to fail in that.
