If your threat model is a bit smaller, simulate putting a smaller object into the MOAC's furnace. For example, the Earth has a mass of 5.972×10²⁴ kg; this gives the MOAC a one-in-ten-trillion chance of cracking a password with 256 entropy bits and a 100% chance of cracking a 213-bit password.

## Sample unbreakable passwords

According to KeePassXC's password generator, each of the following passwords has en
entropy between 330 and 340 bits.

Using the extended-ASCII character set:

```
¦=¦FVõ)Çb^ÄwΡ=,°m°B9®;>3[°r:t®Ú"$3CG¨/Bq-y\;

Don't use actual excerpts from pre-existing works as your password.

## Conclusion/TLDR

Question: How much entropy should a password have to ensure it will never be vulnerable to a brute-force attack? Can the most theoretically powerful computer--the MOAC--crack your password?
