Rocks Are Jupiter Ascending

Santa Monica, CA, USA | Learning | April 29, 2017

I’m in my Algebra II class, and I notice the textbook asks a question about a rock dropping on three planets, and asks which one will hit the ground first.

The planets are Earth, Mars, and… Jupiter. Astronomy nerds like me would face-palm, as JUPITER DOESN’T HAVE A SOLID SURFACE! However, I know the textbook is looking for Jupiter as the answer, so I call over the teacher to explain that it is wrong.

Surprisingly, she took it very well, and told me she’d tell the publishers that it is wrong.

Hopefully, they learned their lesson.
