Can A Habitable Planet Have Rings

This is a false-scale image of all objects in orbit around the Earth that NASA/RSA/EASA jointly monitor. You can clearly see the outer ring of GEO objects. Most of these objects are manmade, and most of those are space junk; decommissioned satellites and their debris, pieces of launch vehicles we had to accelerate fast enough to get into a stable orbit, etc. There are thousands more manmade pieces of debris that NASA doesn't keep an eye on because they're too small to pose a re-entry hazard and aren't in a conflicting orbit with any valuable satellites. There was, at one point, an image from a survey probe that caught a beautiful "goodbye" picture of Earth with the sun perfectly aligned to glint off the debris ring around Earth, but I can't find it in the midst of all the "artist's impressions" and enhanced images. As far as why we don't have more, it's mainly chance. A long-term stable orbit around a planet of Earth's size is a fairly tricky thing to achieve, especially without being able to make adjustments.

They're more massive, so as they formed, they carved wider swaths out of the accretion disk as they "cleared the neighborhood" of their orbit. In addition to its size (95Me) and its rings, Saturn has 13 objects large and round enough to call "moons" (at least 50km diameter), plus 40 additional named orbiting bodies and another 9 objects with a confirmed size and orbit. They're further out than Earth, so they get the first shot at capturing "new" stuff that de-orbits from the Kuiper belt and Oort cloud out around and beyond Pluto. Because of the relative importance of the mass term and the distance term in gravitational force equations, more massive objects have a wider range of stable orbits, thus random object incursion doesn't have to be quite so precise as it would around Earth. In addition, what you're seeing around the gas giants is survivor bias; the gas giants, being, well, gas and giants, are much more tolerant of outright impacts, so we don't really see their effects unless we happen to be watching (like when the remains of Shumacher-Levy 9 hit Jupiter). The earth, in its first few million years of existence as a ball of cooling magma, was nearly destroyed by a mass that would become the moon. This chance encounter turned out to be advantageous for the planet, as it gained a sizable shield which has protected the planet from countless impacts over the years by taking the hits itself.

New World. It constitutes the main territory of one of the Four Emperors, Big Mom, and her crew, the Big Mom Pirates, which extends around Whole Cake Island. It is navigable with a New World Log Pose. According to Pekoms, it is considered one large, powerful nation, and Big Mom as its queen wants it to become a utopia that unifies all races of the world. Totto Land is the general setting for the Whole Cake Island Arc. Totto Land is a massive archipelago with Whole Cake Island, Big Mom's base of operation, in its center, and 34 subsidiary islands, arranged roughly in concentric circles. Each subsidiary island is ruled by a member of the Charlotte Family as its minister. Most islands are themed after food. The territory's border is lined by a weather phenomenon known as "Cotton Candy Snow" ((), Wata ame Yuki?) (known as Cotton Candy Flurry in the English dub) in which small bits of cotton candy gently descends from the sky. Whole Cake Island: The central and main island, themed after cake. It is the base of operations of the Big Mom Pirates. 100% Island: It is governed by Minister of Juice Smoothie. Biscuits Island: An island themed after biscuits.

They are battleships in the shape of confectionery tarts, hence their names, and they compose the majority of Big Mom's fleet. Any unauthorized ships sighted by them are immediately shot down. Territorial sea slugs are scattered across the immediate sea, and send out warning signals to Den Den Mushi to warn visitors and alert whatever Tarteship is within reach. When called upon, Tartes can leave their designated posts and join battles at the best of the Big Mom Pirates. Several of them were destroyed by Daifuku's genie when it attempted to kill Carrot. Totto Land is most notable for being home to members of almost every race and tribe in the world, as Big Mom claims to desire a utopia where all races and species can live in harmony.

The known races that inhabit Totto Land are humans, fish-men, merfolk, minks, snakenecks, longarms, longlegs, dwarves, three-eyes, along with several hybrids of different races. Strangely, living objects (such as furniture, ships, food, etc. ) as well as talking animals that are not clearly minks or Zoan fruit users also live in Totto Land. These living objects and talking animals are referred to as "homies", and were essentially brought to life and given human-like traits by Big Mom's Soru Soru no Mi. Big Mom also has a liking for collecting rare and unique animals for her own amusement. By law, all the citizens of Totto Land must donate one month of their lifespan every six months as a fee for Big Mom's protection or else they must leave. However, Brûlée and Praline claimed that Linlin would never allow anyone to leave Totto Land alive, meaning a death penalty may be imposed to anyone who attempts to leave. Despite the diversity of the races within the archipelago, there are no giants living there; this is because every giant in the world despises Big Mom after she wreaked havoc on Elbaf due to her eating disorder, and after a failed attempt to reconcile with them, which only further deepened their animosity for her, she effectively gave up on trying to bring them over to her side, deciding instead to use scientists like Caesar Clown to create her own giants. Aside from giants, lesser known races such as Sky People, Kinokobito, and the Three-Eye Tribe are never seen living in Totto Land in abundance either, with the only known Kinokobito being a prisoner of Big Mom's and the only known Three-Eye ( Charlotte Pudding) being reviled and discriminated by the population until she was forced to hide her third eye.

Totto Land also lacks two other races, one of the reasons is due to how one race, the Lunarians, dwindled over time, hence her attempt to recruit King from the Beasts Pirates into her crew. : the character is dead. : the character is non-canon. : the character is no longer part of this group.
