Here is a new Maths question for 2013

A spaceship is moving with constant velocity in deep space when an onboard explosion splits the ship into two.
If the two parts of the ship, masses M and m, still continue in the same direction and the kinetic energy released by the explosion was E, what is the difference in velocity of the two parts?

And a happy new year to all!
