A little interesting about space life.

The truth is that Pluto's large moon Charon is a freak. Pluto and Charon do not behave like a "normal" planet-and-moon duo. In fact, the system is unique in our Solar System because the two small, icy worlds face each other and spin together around a fixed point. For this reason, many planetary scientists have suggested that Pluto and Charon actually form a binary system--rather than that of a moon and planet pair. The new research shows that the chaotic movements of Pluto's smaller moons are caused by this weird Pluto-Charon relationship.



and here is another

Lack of Stars. Another famous argument for the moon landing hoax is a total lack of stars in the photographic and video evidence - even in the photos and videos of high quality. Here on Earth, when there's a black sky, there is always a lot of stars, so the videos must have been shot on a film stage. Right? Not so fast...



and finally

The exact composition of these bodies of liquid remained unknown until 2014, when the radar instrument aboard Cassini was first used to show that Ligeia Mare, the second largest sea on Titan, is richly endowed with methane. Ligeia Mare is similar in size to two of the Great Lakes on Earth combined--Lake Huron and Lake Michigan! The new study, published in the February 25, 2016 issue of the Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets, which used the radar instrument in a different mode, independently confirmed the 2014 result. "It's a marvelous feat of exploration that we're doing extraterrestrial oceanography on an alien moon," commented Dr. Steve Wall in an April 26, 2016 Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Press Release. Dr. Wall, who is of the JPL in Pasadena, California, is Cassini radar team deputy lead.

Our Moon is Earth's only permanent natural satellite. It is also the largest moon in our Solar System relative to the size of its host planet. Second only to Jupiter's volcanic Galilean moon, Io, our Moon is the densiest natural satellite among those whose densities have been determined.



Earth's lunar companion is thought to have been born about 4.51 billion years ago, according to a recent study. This means that our Moon was born soon after Earth's formation in the primeval Solar System. The average distance of Earth's Moon from our planet is about 238,900 miles--or approximately 1.28 light-seconds--and it is in synchronous rotation with Earth, always showing the same face, with the near side famous for its beautiful bewitching dark volcanic maria (Latin for seas) that are situated between prominent impact craters and the bright, very ancient, crustal highlands. Our Moon's surface is actually quite dark, even though it appears in the sky at night to be very bright, with a reflectance only a bit higher than that of old asphalt. The prominent position of our Moon in our planet's night sky, as well as its regular cycle of phases, have made our nearest and dearest celestial companion a valuable cultural influence since ancient times in art, mythology, language, and on calendars.



For a very long time, planetary scientists favored the scenario that the duo of potato-shaped Martian moons were probably snared asteroids. However, the pair's circular orbits at the equator indicated otherwise. The orbits of the little moons suggested that they had really formed from a giant impact billions of years ago. The new research, published in the July 4, 2016 issue of Nature Geoscience, proposes that a massive 2,000 kilometer protoplanet crashed into the primordial Mars. The horrendous impact resurfaced most of the Martian surface and hurled a mass of debris, more than 100 times the mass of both Phobos and Deimos, into orbit around the Red Planet.
