Also, about Lovell and Freeman, that shows how little the deaths were explained. I still wonder what happened, the physics involved, etc.
well i thought that i'd already explained that

it's like this.
80mph - into a tree = 160mph impact
- speed doubles when you hit something that abruptly, just like a head on collision -

this is not a rollover. flip. dip off the road.
this was like hitting a brick wall.
the worst kind of rally accident that can be had.

honestly, I am suprised Markko is alive.
I think that had the tree been larger, he'd be gone as well
Horrible stuff this is

want to learn more about physics... maybe take a class or something ???
i'm not being rude. i'm just not sure how else to explain it.
