A3_6 Pandora’s Floating Mountains: Rotational Momentum

Lee Garland, Gregor McQuade, Michael Walker, Thomas Bradley

This article seeks to prove this is possible through the centrifugal force generated by the rotation of a planet. It was discovered that the necessary period of rotation, if that planet were Earth, was 13.4 minutes.
