In the world of Chaos for a book/TV series I may create, a super Earth planet was embroiled in a 100 year long war, until the advanced Rhiobanna Dominion used a massive web of underground nukes to blow the tectonic plates off the planet’s core. The atmosphere and planetary core were unchanged, but the tectonic plates were pinned between by their dual gravitational forces. Several hundred million years passed, and what was once the underside of the plates have become the surface of immense floating islands. My question is: Would this world work with known scientific laws? I haven’t really checked my science, it just seemed cool. Anyway, here are some things about Chaos:
- The largest island is the size of Greenland, and the smallest islands are around the size of Albany, NY.
- Smaller islands are often colder, since they drift further into the atmosphere.
- The core of the old planet works like a sun in this world, providing a decent amount of light, heat, and energy.
- The islands are connected by massive “threads” of water, functioning like rivers.
- Gravity on these islands is screwy. Usually, it pulls things toward the atmosphere (“down”), but if one climbs a mountain on one of these islands, the Core’s gravity will pull things toward itself (“up”).
- Chaos’s moon, Ydroexagogéas, is pretty far from Chaos, but it still exerts a gravitational effect. Whichever islands it passes by get pulled a little further into the atmosphere, and become colder. Respectively, when the moon reaches its apogee from an island, it gets pulled slightly closer to the Core. So, due to Ydroexagogéas, Chaos’s seasonal cycle only takes 3.5 Earth months.
I apologize in advance if this question is too broad or doesn’t make sense.
