"I tried to explain that with the two astronauts , if you could slice a planet in half then the two halfs in a vacuum would each exert a repelling force upon each other equal to their masses should they make contact, hence in a weightless environment it would be impossible to create a pressure in the center due to either of them pushing more than the other because either would move away, as they would not then the equal force creating an equal repelling force means that they cancel out the possibility of any pressure build up."

Ever hear of the Casimir effect? http://physicsweb.org/article/news/2/12/1
