A spaceship of mass 2.3×10^6 kg is cruising at a speed of 6.0×10^6 m/s when the antimatter reactor fails, blowing the ship into three pieces. One section, having a mass of 5.2×10^5 kg, is blown straight backward with a speed of 2.0×10^6 m/s. A second piece, with mass 8.4×10^5 kg, continues forward at 9.0×10^5 m/s.
