when items float freely inside a space capsule, is it an example of Newton's law #1 or #3? As soon as the astronauts take off their helmets and gloves (after lift-off) in Apollo 13, the gloves float away. So is that an object in motion tends to stay in motion OR every action has an equal and opposite reaction? I don't remember if they actually batted the gloves.

    Does taking off the gloves require motion? Which do you think it is?
