# The Earth is not a rogue planet

Classical Mechanics Level pending

A small rogue planet has been colonised by alien-human hybrids as the first of the Fourth Great and Bountiful Human Empire. Scientists were testing jettisoning projectiles on this spherical planet and recorded this down before they started:

Data:

• Planet mass is $$1.08 \times 10^{24}$$ kg

• Projectile speeds are 100m/s

Find the distance (in metres) between the starting point of the projectiles and the collision post of the projectiles with the ground. Assume this testing procedure occurred on flat ground.
