  1. Where do you get that 900km's for DS II?

  2. I thought it was the forest moon of Endor. A moon that was orbiting the planet Endor?

  3. I believe they are referring to the actual Planet Endor. And the above says Yavin Prime not Yavin IV.

  4. Strange the gravity force is the same in all of them despite the different sizes... ��

    1. Agreed. I always wondered about this myself

    3. That could be affected by several factors. Primarily would be the density of the planet. However, obviously the most glaring example would be the moon of Endor, as it is much smaller than the other planets.

      However, I think that we can assume, since we never see the gas giant Endor in the sky, that the moon is tidally locked to the planet. So, if the moon is within a certain distance of the planet, the planet would affect the moon's gravity enough to make a difference.

      Thus, in the area where the Empire set up the shield generator for the Death star(center of the side facing away from the planet), the moon(as we see in the movie) has near earth norm gravity, but as you move away from that spot, the gravity becomes less, and on the opposite side of the moon, the gravity is essentially negligible.

    4. I thought the Empire installed "Artificial Gravity [Technology]" which made the Ewoks 'Completely' Harmless Weapons (Sticks & Stones) more Dangerous than any High Tech Weapon (Lasers & Motorized Armored Vehicles).
      Even Though my Reference(s) is Technically no longer Canon, it Specifically Covers the part(s) that is Completely Canon.

    5. Seems like nobody is walking on Bespin or Yavin Prime, gravity must be too great. Just in Cloud City and Yavin 4.

  5. When you see the size disparity between them like this, it seems so ridiculous that the death star could destroy alderaan. I don't care how much power it's packing, it should feel like a pin prick on the surface of something that much larger.

    1. Yeah, thought that too.
      But don't forget this is science fiction and anything can happen!

  6. What is their "Gravity Rating"s?
