A1_5: Planet Smash

Luca Samuel James, Alistair Goodwin, Laura Horton, Chris Mander, Michael McKee


In this paper, the terminal falling velocity of the character Mario in Super Smash Bros. Wii U is used to calculate the gravity of the planet shown in the background of the ``Battlefield'' stage of the game. This information is used to calculate a value of gravity g = 0.33 ms^(-2), and a radius of 338 km for the planet, which is used to deduce tectonic activity, a magnetic field and a sea of potentially N2O4 on the planet.
