1.) How many moons does Jupiter really have?
2.) How many Joules does a nuclear bomb give off?
3.) Is 2.94 x 10^22 Joules a lot?
1.) There are 67 moons for Jupiter! There are 50 moons and 17 provisional moons. https://solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/profile.cfm?Object=Jupiter&Display=Moons
2.) Some nuclear weapons contain about 20 megatons, which equates to average blast of 4x10^15 Joules.
3.) YES! 6 million megatons of nuclear power does equate to about 6x10^22. This would likely render Earth uninhabitable.
My hat is off to Charles Soule for doing his math and science homework! Kudos! Keep up the good work!
