Chris gets bored in Physics class and starts digging. Being a very good digger, he digs through the centre of the earth and out the other side. Terps (his girlfriend) soon starts to miss Chris and jumps through the hole after him. Describe her movement. Will she come out? (assuming she won't burn up in the core)
Written answers only.
Best/most creative answer at the end of term one (~2 weeks) will win A CAN OF COKE (and eternal glory).
Randomness is encouraged, but it must have scientific reasoning.
EDIT: Here was /b/'s answer, which was suitably epic.
The core of the earth's gravitational pull will keep her stuck in the middle. She'll also weigh a fuckton, suspended in air. (Assuming the hole goes straight through the core and is wide enough to move around in.)

Randomness is encouraged. Don't care if it's true or not. this is /b/ dammit

This, and that she will hit terminal velocity and die. So floating corpse in the middle of the Earth is my answer.

Why the fuck would you want a random answer if a can of coke is at stake, retard?
What do you expect /b/ to say? No u? Would that be an acceptable answer? Or how about Needs more battletoads? Push button, recieve bacon? Is what you wanted from /b/ and answer or a pointless meme that will do nothing towards your goal of aquiring delicious coke?
tl;dr, you're a dumbass, answer is here. >>60193870

You sir, are correct.

OP are you stupid, he wouldnt even reach the core, the pressure would kill him.
if the hole previously existed, you would have to calculate if the woman has enough acceleration to escape the gravitational field of the core.

I think a more pressing issue is that if there was a giant hole puncturing the earth, all the gravity would escape.

when you throw a ball in the air, it peaks and then returns back down, and, minus air resistance, ends up going down at the same speed that you threw it up
this would be the same if she jumped in the hole, she would slowly build up speed and then slowly lose it, but with air resistance she wouldnt return to the same height, but if she held onto like a ton going down and let going at the center, she would have enough speed to make it out
