# Kinematics Part 1: Where am I?

I claimed that my last post was not going to be foundational, and then I went an wrote about pretty much everything which lies at the foundation of classical mechanics. Now it’s time I feel to distill all that down to the bare fundamentals, without the wrapper of a falling coin that my previous post provided.

# No, this August, Mars will not appear as big as the full moon in Earth's sky... Part 2!

In my last post, I shared a bit of my history with the "Mars Spectacular," and I encourage you to take a look at that if you have not already.

But, alas, I can't just stop at refuting this claim by demonstrating that it's been made before. No, I have to refute it with math!

I am busily working on another post called The Problem with Payloads, within which I make that claim that for any positive numbers $$A$$, $$B$$, and $$C$$, where $$A>B$$, $$\frac{A}{B} > \frac{A+C}{B+C} > 1. \label{081117frac}$$
