Jos is correct.  The Zetas have commented on this before. The ZetaTalk
below is taken from the ZetaTalk science section at
http://www.zetatalk.com/science/s59.htm, with diagram. The ACTUAL
frame-by-frame video of trajectories shows Bill’s math to be wrong, but
he will still want to treat it as a god until proven otherwise, I’m
sure.  After all, he was taught this in school, so how could it be
wrong?  Baaaa go the Sheep of sci.astro ...

Trajectories that parallel the surface of a large object
exerting a strong gravitational pull lob up, then curve,
and finally drop straight down, upon close examination.
Some shots low to the ground barely get into their
downward drop before arriving on the surface, and thus
this point is missed on those not astute. But videotaped
trajectories, examined in a frame by frame manner,
display this scenario:

- The object desires to go in a straight line, in the direction
pointed in and impelled.

- As the gravity pull is at its side, the straight line is
diminished into a curve, as the drop of the object due to
gravity is superimposed on the trajectory. The magical
curve, in fact, is a combination of linear momentum and
gravity drop.

- When the object reaches its apex, the linear momentum
no longer is away from the gravitational giant, as the
object now is pointed toward the giant. This is a
significant turning point, no pun intended, as from this
point forward the object now finds that its linear
momentum and its gravity drop are combined, and thus,
with this combined force, it ends up heading straight
down.
