Interesting facts about space.

Looking inward from Triton, there are seven regular moons, all of which display prograde orbits in planes that are situated close to Neptune's equitorial plane, and some of these small moons orbit within Neptune's rings. It is thought that these seven small moons were re-accreted from the rubble ring that formed after Neptune snared Triton. This would have occurred some time after Triton's orbit had become circular. In addition, Neptune is circled by six more outer irregular moons other than Triton, including Nereid, whose orbits are considerably farther from Neptune and at high inclination: A trio of these moons sport prograde orbits, while the remainder have retrograde orbits. Indeed, Nereid has an unusually close and eccentric orbit for an irregular moon. This suggests that Nereid may have once been a regular moon that was badly disturbed and nudged into its current position when Triton was snared by Neptune's gravity. The duo of outermost Neptunian irregular moons, Psamathe and Neso, have the largest orbits of any natural satellites known in our Solar System to date.



and here is another

Dr. Lieber and his colleagues did a study to test the theory of full-moon "lunacy". They studied data on murders in Dade County of Florida which covered 15 years and a total of 1,887 deaths by homicide. When they compared the deaths with the phases of the moon, they found that the two rose and fell together for the entire 15 years! With the approach of a full or new moon, there was a sharp spike in the murder rate, and then a decline during the first and last quarters of the moon.



and finally

The team also considered whether it would be possible to determine, with an adequate degree of certainty, if a detected moon could bear life-loving liquid water. In their analysis, the "input" climate for the moon is habitable, which is identified with high probability. However, there still remains approximately a one in six failure rate.

More information:

Titan possesses a smooth, young surface, scarred by comparatively few impact craters. The climate of this frigid moon--including its fierce winds and showers of hydrocarbon rain--carves out surface features that bear an eerie resemblance to those on Earth, such as lakes, sand dunes, rivers, seas, and deltas. Indeed, planetary scientists propose that Titan bears a haunting resemblance to Earth, and is believed to be similar to the way our planet was before life had a chance to evolve out of non-living substances (prebiotic).



Because the lunar atmosphere is very thin, it is far too sparse to prevent a steady shower of impacts from tumbling asteroids, comets, and meteoroids. These objects strike the lunar surface, leaving behind numerous crater scars. For example, Tycho Crater is over 52 miles wide.



This revised birth date for the Moon comes from a new study that takes a detour from the long-standing debate about its true age, and is basically in agreement with those planetary scientists who suggest a late-forming Moon. The new method that the scientists used to arrive at their conclusion eliminates numerous problems with traditional methods for calculating the Moon's age.
