I was going to comment that the atmosphere takes about 1/3 to 1/2 the mussel velocity based on my 1987 paper on the Flight of Passive Launch Vehicles. I am about to re-do the paper and am working from memory.
I try but get the note I need 50 Reputation to do so.
How do I get this reputation to do so? If it is more than a day’s work forget it and don’t reply this email. This is in relation to sweep / survey research (who’s doing work in the field now) not home base research to me.
