    1. He shouldn’t be, but then again he shouldn’t be able to reach orbit with a trampoline, either.

      He could be in orbit but it doesn’t look like he has much velocity parallel to the earth’s surface (orbiting is basically going sideways faster than you can fall-like a ball spinning on a rubber band, the ball acting like a the trampoline-naut and the rubber band acting as gravity). If he’s in orbit, it’s a pretty elliptical one, like a comet’s orbit.

      If he was traveling over ~25,000mph at earth’s surface, he’d be going fast enough to escape earth’s gravity and drift into space until he hit something.
