Suppose that three astronauts outside a spaceship
decide to play catch. All the astronauts weigh the same on
Earth and are equally strong. The first astronaut throws
the second astronaut toward the third one and the game
begins. Describe the motion of the astronauts as the game
proceeds. How long will the game last?
