There are a few people I might like to fire into the heart of the sun, but I hadn’t realized how difficult that was. Here’s a video and simple simulator that lets you try to fire a rocket right into the sun. It took me a few tries to figure out how to do it — you have to launch directly opposite to the direction of Earth’s travel, and cancel out its velocity…and then it will fall into the sun. If you’re a fair bit off, it flies off into a new orbit around the sun that intersects with Earth’s orbit, which is not good. If you’re a teeny tiny bit off, it just scarcely grazes the sun, and then something cool happens: it slingshots around at tremendous velocity and flies off the screen.
I mostly sent rockets off to Alpha Centauri, or something, which is not quite as spectacularly destructive as slamming into a giant radioactive ball of plasma. But still good.
