    Default Planet Blueberry

    What would happen if the Earth was suddenly replaced with an equal volume of Blueberries?

    The serious answer is actually quite funny.

    there would be plenty of muffins to make but nowhere to eat them and the resultant smell would rival toe jam

    The Blueberry Jam geysers are a personal favourite.

    Stolen!!!!! My eldest son is going to love this. When he finished high school (last century). The comment at final assembly was that "This kid has done more maths than we even knew was in the curriculum.".
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    If you want to hear some professional astronomers laughing at it, listen to "The Jodcast".
    That's where I picked it up from. I found myself doing the same thing as the astronomers and laughing along with them.
    But it's the things you don't think of like the air between the blueberries that you then take into consideration.

    What colour is the sky on planet blueberry? I laughed because I thought about it.
    I couldn't calculate the escape velocity, but some of the jam geysers might shoot blueberries into orbit and form a blueberry ring system.

    The mass of the new planet is about the same as the moon, so it becomes binary system. And you can just keep playing with the hilarious ideas.
    I haven't calculated the new orbital period of the new binary system, but if it is about 90 days (4 to 1 orbit resonance with their solar orbit) then the blueberry planet and the moon have a roughly square orbit around the sun.

    Yes, you can have square orbits (with rounded corners) if you have a 4:1 orbit of a binary system.
