The Power as a function of mass(m), distance (d), and time(t) equation computes the watts required to lift an object directly up under a planet's gravity.

 P_(Earth) = (m * g_(Earth) * h) / t

The planet list is used to retrieve the acceleration due to gravity (g) on the surface of that planetoid object.  This list includes:

• Earth: g = 9.8 m/s2
• Moon: g = 1.6 m/s2
• Mercury: g = 3.61 m/s2
• Venus: g = 8.83 m/s2
• Mars: g = 3.75 m/s2
• Jupiter: g = 26.0 m/s2
• Saturn: g= 11.2 m/s2
• Neptune: g = 13.3 m/s2
• Pluto: g = 0.61 m/s2
