You know those nifty food replicators from “Star Trek”, which create tasty meals and tea, earl grey, hot?
Using E=MC^2 for 1/4 of a kilogram of “food” (about half a pound)
E = 1/4C^2 = 2.24688795 Ã— 10^16 joules.

Today marks the anniversary of the first “Star Trek” episode aired on NBC on September 8th, 1966.
“The Man Trap” is a first season episode of Star Trek: The Original Series.
It originally aired on September 8, 1966, and was the first episode to be shown on NBC.
It is episode #1 of the entire series, and was written by George Clayton Johnson, and directed by Marc Daniels.
To clarify, Earth has the highest size/mass ratio of all planets, yes, even Jupiter and Saturn.
The “gas giants” are much, much more massive, but are comprised almost entirely of gas.
On the topic of density, Saturn is actually less dense than water!
If you had an ocean big enough, Saturn would float like a beach ball.
