Santa will be doing his rounds a little quicker this year thanks to his new power-plant:

Sadly, if you do the sums, this just doesn't cut the mustard.

You need to crack on at Mach many, even if you assume that at least 50% of children are bad. As such, hight bypass turbofans fail. You want ramjets or scramjets. And the presents would have to be delivered with kevlar parachutes, GPS guided to hit the target chimneys.

I could go on...

Suffice it to say that if I could deliver that kind of capability IRL, I'd never need to work again...

I'll bet the two deer in the back are REAL nervous.

i have a paper where soemone did the math, and:

the sleigh must move at 1000 kilometres per second, make 822,6 stops a second and at each stop, santa has 1/1000 second to get down the chimney, place presents, eat porrige, and get back up again. the sleigh itself would weigh about 343 000 tons, and generate 14,3 quintrillions joule of pure energy, which would vapurize the all the (estimated) 144 900 flying rheindeers in 0,004 seconds.

also, santa would have to endure 17 500G!

Yes, but is that taking in account that different countries celebrate Christmas on different days? In Sweden it's celebrated on 24th Dec' and in Russia it's not until 7th of January, giving Santa plenty of time to complete the task http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Yes but Santa already has that covered. He has a time distortion machine that slows things down. He also has a wormhole generator that bridges the gap between two places. He isn't really traveling the distance of the globe. All of his stops are right next to each other, like walking from one room to the next and since he can slow time down, he has all the time he needs.
Every problem that Santa has encountered has been overcome...The aliens helped him...or was it Gene Roddenberry?

From what I've read, if he were still alive Gene Roddenberry would most definitely take his share of the credit.

What about all the gastro-intestinal problems and diarrhea he would suffer? Also it doesn't take into account bathroom breaks!

I think I'm going to report this to the FAA and the NTSB due to the danger of the reindeer getting ingested into the fan blades. A complete redesign should be undertaken immediately!! We all know what geese can do to turbofans. But reindeer??

Time distortion contraptions etc etc are all Lies. Utter Lies.

Santa Claus has a little helper gnome called Chuck Norris who delivers all the pressies.
17,500 Gs is nothing to him.
