The Science of the Spherus Magna System


Recommended Posts

Over the past 2 years I have been slowly working on a scientific investigation of the Spherus Magna Planetary System from BIONICLE. Do you want to know the strength of the surface gravity on Bara Magna? The orbital distance of the Red Star? Take a look at the below links to find out the answers to these and way more questions you probably never asked. I’ve spent so long on this and poured so much time and effort into it and I am so proud of the result. I hope any of you that are interested will check it out - if you get even a tenth of the enjoyment out of it that I did making it, I think it will be time well spent.

I’ve got two versions of the document linked below, the Summary version (which just contains my results without any of the workings out or maths behind it) and the full version (that contains all 53 pages of my full methodology):

Full Paper: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mxfb3igfxwoem5m/The%20Science%20of%20the%20Spherus%20Magna%20System%20-%20Full%20Paper.pdf?dl=0

Here is a preview of some of my results - a fully to scale map of the system!

Aqua Magna and Bota Magna didn't actually orbit Bara Magna. They all had their own separate orbits around Solis Magna, and the whole reason Mata Nui had that "map" in his brain was when their positions aligned just right so he could rebuild the planet.  It was a reminder of *when* he had to return from his mission, not where. This definitely wasn't made up my me at all just now.

This is some seriously good stuff, I envy your ability!

I can't be the only one who thought Bara Magna was the Death Star for a second.

But seriously, this is wicked cool. I love it when people look at Bionicle from a realistic lens, and especially as far as natural sciences go, I know Bionicle's track record isn't perfect. But this is cool, even if I have no idea what it means.

That's actually a really cool idea, I'll have to consider making that my headcanon.
