A spaceship is traveling through deep space towards a space station and needs to make a course correction to go around a nebula. The captain orders the ship to travel 2.9 106 kilometers before turning 70° and traveling 2.7 106 kilometers before assuming the path towards the space station. If the captain had not ordered a course correction, what would have been the magnitude and direction of the path of the spaceship if it had traveled through the nebula?
