To Brian,

I do know them, but also have noticed that it is potentially dangerous to
throw them in the ring. ;)

The formula in Kellies Explorer page is correct. The same thing you asked
about that 5 m/s, I asked Kelly some long time ago (so long that he probably
doesn't remember it anymore (no offence)).

So, bottom line, is the NUMBER right.  You only said the formula was 
correct.  Did I misunderstand you?  I keep getting 5E16W, not 5E9W.
