I was wondering how large a Terra could orbit a gas giant, I will Post the top three up here.
Well from my 1 year of exploring this vast universe the large moons always seem to like to orbit the small ice giants.

1st: LiveLife42
2nd: LiveLife42
3rd: Migratingmynah
No massive moons in the solar system like these...





Bye

Well, technically, 9.99 Earth masses. Ice giants have been found orbiting heavy gas giants as moons (not double planets; classic moons), so the upper limit for a moon lies above the maximal mass of a terra with heavy gas giants. It'll be very interesting to see what will actually eb found, though.




I occasionally stream at http://www.twitch.tv/magistermystax. Sometimes SE, sometimes other games.

This moon is so massive it might be one of the most massive rocky moon's I have found.
