Abstract


This article presents an extension of the work in ‘A2_9 None Like It Hot’, and investigates whether a feat such as moving the Earth would be plausible given conventional rocket technology. It is found that the mass of fuel necessary to perform the Hohmann transfer is only a few orders of magnitude smaller than the mass of the Earth. The number of rockets will make only a small difference due to the nature of the relationship between the two values.
