A little interesting about space life.

Moon jellyfish (Aurelia aurita) are from the phylum Cnidaria. This phylum contains over 9,000 aquatic species. There are 10 nearly identical species in the genus Aurelia collectively referred to as moon jellyfish. In fact, they are so close morphologically that it takes DNA testing to distinguish one species from another.

and here is another

How am I so sure of this? Simple. Because I've personally been using the moon to my advantage for more than 20 years, and know how effective it is. Have you ever had one of those epic days fishing where it seemed like no matter what you threw in the water, you caught fish? If you have, it was more than likely due to the fact that the moon was in a certain phase, rather than your skills as an angler (I hate to burst anyone's bubble, but it's true).

and finally

The discovery that the hidden interior of Earth's Moon contains water raises some interesting questions concerning lunar formation. Most planetary scientists think that our Moon was born from the debris left behind after the catastrophic collision of our primordial planet with the tragedy that was Theia. This collision would have occurred very early in our Solar System's history. However, one of the reasons scientists had proposed that the lunar interior should be dry is that it is unlikely that the hydrogen necessary to create water could have survived following the ferocious heat of that ancient impact.

In the fourth century BCE, Aristotle recorded that Mars vanished behind Earth's Moon during an occultation. This suggested that the planet was farther away than our Moon. The Greek astronomer, Ptolemy, who lived in Alexandria, attempted to solve the problem of the orbital motion of the Red Planet. Ptolemy's collective works and model on astronomy was presented in his multi-volume collection, titled the Almagest. The Almagest became the authoritative work on Western astronomy for the next 400 years. Ancient Chinese astronomers were also aware of the existence of Mars by no later than the fourth century BCE. In the fifth century CE, the Indian astronomical work titled Surya Siddhanta proposed a measurement of the estimated diameter of Mars. In East Asian cultures, Mars is usually referred to as the "fire star"--based on the Five Elements: fire, wood, metal, water, and earth.

The research published in the July 4, 2016 issue of Nature Geoscience highlights the main factor differentiating moon-birth around Mars and Earth: the differing rotation speeds of the two planets prompted "completely different tidal actions," Dr. Charnoz explained in the July 4, 2016 CNRS Press Release. Dr. Charnoz proposes that at the time of their respective impacts, "Earth took less than four hours to spin on its axis whereas Mars rotated very slowly over a 24-hour period." The result of this important difference caused Earth to hold on to its single, large Moon, while the Martian collision created a dozen smaller moons alongside a larger moon. As time went by, Martian tidal action--resulting from the planet's slow rotation rate--caused most of the moons, including the largest one, to crash back down to the surface of their parent-planet. As a result, only the two most distant moons, Phobos and Deimos, survived as testimony to the ancient catastrophe.

Our Earth basks comfortably in the sunny, warmer, inner regions of our Solar System, and our Moon is the largest one of its kind, in this region, relatively close to our Star. Of the four rocky, terrestrial planets--of which our Earth is a member--Mercury and Venus are moonless, and Mars sports two small, misshapen little rocky moons, Phobos and Deimos, that are likely captured refugees from the main asteroid belt that circles our Sun between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.
