  1. There’s a mistake in the third law’s explanation. At 11:53 it’s said that action is Alexander pushing Pedro and the reaction is Pedro moving away. That’s wrong. If action is Alexander pushes Pedro, the reaction is Pedro pushes Alexander with the same force in the opposite way. All the same, if the action is Pedro pushes Alexander, the reaction is Alexander pushes Pedro with the same force in the opposite direction. That should be corrected in a video coming from such an important agency as ESA.
