As a trained geologist... by ENOENT (4.00 / 1) #1 Tue Mar 22, 2005 at 04:18:13 AM EST
I object to terrestrial planets having water cores.

Also, from freshman physics, I would like to point out that persons traveling through the center of a planet will experience weightlessness.

That is all.


Life is just one damned thing after another.
Love is just two damned things after each other.

Seatbelts, constant acceleration, etc, etc.

Yes, I believe that they maintained a constant 1G accelleration during their entire trip  underwater, and that nuclear fusion was induced in the bubbles left in their wake.

Naboo is not a natural planet, but an artificial creation of some long-extinct civilization. The water and rocks are held together using technology that functions through means no longer understood by the people in the movie. Gravity is likewise artificial on Naboo.

Everything artificial by ENOENT (2.00 / 0) #7 Tue Mar 22, 2005 at 05:07:47 AM EST
That would explain the distinct lack of personality among Nabooites.

wouldn't you feel the centripetal force of the planet's orbit around its star?

Weightlessness by jimgon (2.00 / 0) #11 Wed Mar 23, 2005 at 12:31:38 AM EST
But at the center of a planet the ether would be heavier.  You should weigh more at the center than on the surface.  Unless of course you are one of these "new science" people who disagree with the proven fact of the ether.
