    In Super Mario Odyssey, Mario and Cappy collect Power Moons to fuel up their airship. Power Moons are new for Mario Odyssey and they're the only real source of power we see in any of the worlds we travel to, so I had to ask... are these Power Moons actually that strong? I've decided to figure out just how powerful they actually are. Is this the biggest lie in all of Mario canon? Well I'm about to tell you!

    if you think about it, burning about 3 cups of high calorie food hundreds of times can make a good amount of energy.

          For the grand stars to allow for space travel, it’s not guaranteed to be a massive amount, but I think it will be humongous.

              The translation factor from calorie (cal) to Joule (J) is 4.1..... Note that the energy of food is shown in kcal (KILO calorie) wich means 1000 cal.

                            It is called the periodic table of chemical elements, often shortened to periodic table.

                                      OK, your saying these moons are weak, but lets put it in another perspective. The explosive energy of TNT is 4 kJ per gram, or 4 MJ per kilogram. These moons are 1.7 MJ or a little less than half a kilogram of TNT.

                                                                But how much helium III is in the moons? If you find the mass of the moons, assuming they're made of almost entirely helium III, you multiply that by the efficiency of mass to energy conversion in a fusion reaction, 42% if I recall, and find the full potential of the moons.
