No more than they ever manage to make sense of how one would manage to put Ganymede together. The two are insanely different insanely balanced worlds given what they are trying to do and if you start removing parts you'd see them collapse. As you literally see Ganymede do on screen. Since the Moon, Mars, the Asteroids, the Outer Moons, and the Space Stations are just that sensitive to removal of parts within their own systems it gets interesting. The only one that can stand on its relative own is Earth since it has its own natural atmosphere. But then what can it do without resource import from the Outers given its insane population?
