The Final Fantasy VII remake is finally out and that means it's time to talk for Austin to tackle something that has been on his mind for years! At the end of the game, when Sephiroth's meteor is slowly hurtling towards Gaia and it is up to you and the plot to stop it, you have to wonder - is it actually a big deal? Now, meteors are crazy destructive, but this thing is moving so slow! Today, Austin is going to see if this meteor was a dud or if the destruction would have ended the franchise for good!

I wonder if anyone knows who the true savior of the planet is in FFVII. It's not who you would expect (i.e. not Cloud, Aerith, Barret, or Tifa.) It is someone who had a direct link to everything that happens in the game and without whom nothing in the game would have taken place. Let me know if you can figure out who it is, how they saved the planet, and why.

I'm not really sure the physics work out here. Two massive objects impacting each other at low relative speeds would likely release some kinetic energy as heat but a lot of the energy would be released over a significant amount of time and so much of it would be eaten up by deformation that it wouldn't be catastrophic except for the immediate surrounding area.

Couldn't you take one of the space shots and assuming it's the size of the earth using the curvature determine the size of the meteor and than estimate the mass using the same average or is there a lot more math stuff I'm not considering

6:43 Wait? I swear I read that Midgar was about 300 meters above surface from somewhere... And considering the scales of the Remake and certain scenes where Cloud's gang takes a look at the destroyed Sector 7 during daytime, I'd say 300 meters is much more closer to the truth. 11:59 Now I get it.

I really feel like, the size of Midgar is being seriously under sized here. Imo, Midgar looks at least the size of LA in how much landmass it takes up. If that is the case, that meteor would be a lot wider. Thus, the meteor would be hole lot bigger than what is being represented.

I’m not a scientist but I’m curious. If Meteor was that big. Wouldn’t it cause more than just physical damage if the impact? Wouldn’t it’s mere presence cause damage? Shifts in tidal forces. Causing massive Tsunamis? Probably do something to the atmosphere. Mess up gravity etc. idk. I feel like we would be fucked if it even got that close

Amazing video as always. One minor nitpick/stylistic question - why the wide range of measurement units, like using miles and kilometers in the same scenario and on the screen at the same time yet referring to different things (as opposed to listing both with one being the conversion of the other)?

Let me help you. the midgar model in the shinra building is 1/10000 the scale of the actual thing. Given we're dealing with humanoids who are well human, clouds height is about 6ft or roughly 1.83 meters. Compare his length to the length of the radius of the model. Then multiply that by 2pi(r) and then multiply by 10000. You now have the actual circumference of midgar, and because we are only dealing with an exponent of 1 in our calculations, we do not need to worry about adjusting any measurements as we would with say volume. From the cutscenes of the the original we know that Meteor is roughly the same circumference as midgar, so we just need to find volume both the shell of "silicon and carbon" and the core of whatever material is in the interior, probably an ultra dense metal that is extremely conductive. Using the circumference we have found, and the fact that r=C/(2pi) we can guesstimate the thickness (t) of the outer shell and calculate the outer and inner volumes V(outer)= (4/3)pi*((C/2pi)^3-((C/2pi)-t)^3) and V(inner) = (4/3)pi*((C/2pi)-t)^3 Now for the mass. Pick the elements you think most accurately describes their shells and multiply their density times the volumes respectively. M(outer) = (rho)(Vouter) M(inner) = (rho)(Vinner) finally, sum the masses together, guesstimate the velocity, and use the basics of kinetic and potential energy to find a rough estimate for the energy it will impact with. Take the planet to be roughly the same as earth in this scenario. All simple stuff really. Edit: Extremely Conductive*

the apnospere is very large and the meteor in this would most definately cause more damage, because he forgot to acount for distanse and apnosperic alowences because the meteor must be going at LEAST 800-1800m/s for the apnospere to create heat and due to the speed it has to go for that to happen, it must be F A S T
