# Surely a big fart would expand in all directions

# At a rough calculation :
To lift a 63kg person (estimated weight of Marilyn plus space helmet) one metre off the ground, with negligible atmosphere (0.3 nPa) and gravity of 1.62 m/s², thrust perpendicular to the ground and released over several seconds, would require a thrust equivalent to One Really Long And Powerful Fart. To actually reach escape velocity and make it into orbit would require a particularly large and muscular large intestine and some degree of soiling may occur.

Can a gastroenterologist determine how many 400g cans of baked beans this would equate to? It's for a jet propulsion project I'm trying to get NASA/ESA funding for.
