02. Comic-strip hero Superman meets an asteroid in outer space and hurls it at 800 m/s, as fast as a bullet. The asteroid is a thousand times more massive than Superman, yet in the comic strip, he remains stationary after releasing the asteroid. Say, his mass is 107 kg, what is not right in this scene? Consider the law of conservation of momentum. Support your answer by providing a numerical proof.
