A2 3 Rattle the Stars

Ceres Hamade, Ethan Steele, Sam Cooper


In this paper we investigate the energy consumption of the engines powering the vehicles in the
2002 Disney film Treasure Planet, and hence find the minimum power output of the solar sails
prominent in the designs of these vessels. We find that the engines aboard the frigate RLS Legacy
require a minimum of 1.2GW of power, and the small engines on the Solar Surfer require 40MW,
both of which are far outside the maximum possible output of a purely solar power system.
