In the beautiful town of Cityopolis, 3 scientists were hard at work on their next mission: saving Captain Mittens.
We have to rescue poor Cheshire Cat from the gas giant itself: Jupiter!
The question you should be asking is "How on JUPITER are we going to save her?"
Jupiter is 483.3 million miles from the sun! How on Earth are we going to save her?
Why is Jupiter gray? It's usually brown! Oh wait. That's a pole.
On top of that, it will be very difficult to navigate around Jupiter because of its thick, storm-filled atmosphere and the 79 moons that surround it!
Jupiter is so big: its diameter is 86,881 miles! She could be anywhere!
On it! Just finished calculating the minimum thrust required to achieve escape velocity. Jupiter is conveniently at its closest right now during its 12-year orbital period so we won't need a lot of fuel.
Dude, it's just peanut butter. Chill out! Jonabob, don't forget Jupiter's orbital velocity!
JONABOB, GET ON THAT MODEL ROCKET! MAXAMILIUN, I WANTED THAT ON MY DESK 5 MINUTES AGO!
Are we there yet? I'm hungry!
about a minute later...
We're almost there, and stop acting like a baby! You should have eaten the peanut butter!
Guys! Our current velocity is about 23,763 mph! In case you were wondering, I DID use real-world measurements to calculate the final position on Jupiter (365 mil miles away) minus the initial position just outside of Earth's atmosphere (62 miles above Earth) divided by the time it takes to reach Jupiter (640 days/15,360 hours).
With the cat in hand, our beloved heroes set out for home at a deadly pace, stopping only to satisfy Maximiliun's hunger on Mars.
after seconds and seconds of searching...
What took you guys so long?! I've been floating for days!
