if let say,
a helicopter raises and stays static on air (for 24 hours) without moving any where...(just maintained on air)

would the people inside the helicopter able to view the earth from asia to sea, then to sri langka, africa, US (since earth is rotating)

Theoretically? Yes, why not?
Technically? No, because it will run out of fuel and crash, hahaha.

If the helicopter will stay static in the air (assuming the air is still) then its velocity relative to the Earth is equal to 0. Hence, the helicopter will be flying over the same place all the time (i.e. will rotate with the same velocity as the Earth). Wink

MHajduk, stop confusing people with your bizarre theories, will ya?
Gravitation is chimerical. The chopper is constantly moving even when it is hovering because it floats in aether and aether is highly dynamic. The velocity of the chopper can never be null relative to Earth, but is proportional to the concentration of yellow fairies in the aether.

You are sitting on your computer for ~12 hours. Do you and your computer move ~20,000 kilometers?

Simple physics is a "bizarre theory" to you? Wink

I appreciate your abstractive and intelligent sense of humor but the existence of "aether" was rejected already in 19th century, AFAIK. Wink Velocity of the chopper can be null relative to Earth surface (to be precise) for example when it stays on the ground. In the other frame of reference, for example referring to the geometrical center of the Earth (again, I've emphasized some words for precision), both the place on the ground where the chopper is staying and chopper itself have the same angular velocity referring to the axis about which the Earth is rotating.

If you want to tell something about object's velocity you must choose precisely your frame of reference first. Object can have 0 velocity in the one frame of reference and, at the same moment, have nonzero velocity in the other.

It was? Damn, it used to work so well back then! And they did not even bother to notify me when it was decommissioned. Uh I must have missed the memo. You know, bureaucracy. Sigh!

so much effect gravity on us...

Fairies resist framing - hence the wings.

Imagine the friction at the earth-aether boundary. Is there a way around (pun intended, Very Happy) this problem?

I wonder if we have a future in space given our integral common existence with this planet? Gravity is a good example - our structural growth depends on it. Then there is the organic interface with our environment: nutrient, microbial, etc...scaling up to social development. A space faring human might quickly become something else entirely with a few generations!
