Examples of moons in a Sentence

  1. Nick Lane:

    Space missions have found evidence that icy moons of Jupiter and Saturn might also have similarly alkaline hydrothermal vents in their seas, while we have never seen any evidence of life on those moons, if we want to find life on other planets or moons, studies like ours can help us decide where to look.

  2. Brett Kennedy:

    We intend to spin the technologies developed for the terrestrial RoboSimian back out to applications in space, these tasks include assembly and maintenance of orbital structures; exploration of low-gravity bodies like asteroids, comets, and moons; exploration of caves and cliffs on Mars or our moon; and even preconstruction of habitats wherever humans care to venture in the solar system.

  3. Matija Cuk:

    But that fact allows us to use computer simulations to tease out the history of Saturn’s inner moons, doing so, we find that they were most likely born during the most recent 2 percent of the planet’s history. Related : Saturn's largest moon Titan is bursting with color Researchers had long thought Saturn’s rings were as old as the planet itself. But that thinking changed in 2012, when French astronomers found that tidal effects – the gravitational interaction of the inner moons with fluids deep in Saturn’s interior – are causing them to spiral to larger orbital radii comparatively quickly. The implication, given their present positions, is that these moons, and presumably the rings, are not so old. That still did n’t answer exactly when they were born. Cuk and his team turned to results from NASA’s Cassini mission, which has observed ice geysers on Saturn’s moon Enceladus. Assuming that the energy powering these geysers comes directly from tidal interactions and that Enceladus ’ level of geothermal activity is more or less constant, then the tides within Saturn are quite strong. According to the team’s analysis, these would move the satellite by the small amount indicated by the simulations in only about 100 million years.

  4. Joanna Barstow:

    Since long before we started our robotic exploration of the solar system, we wondered if there was life on another world, some of the moons of Jupiter, even though their surfaces are covered with ice, might have liquid water oceans hiding under the surface. Maybe they are sheltering bacterial life as well ? We'd love to find out.

  5. Robert Massey:

    My advice to people would be to go out and have a look because it's a beautiful sight and it's really quite a thing to realize that when you are looking at the moons with a pair of binoculars -- when you see them moving from one night to the next -- it's worth reflecting on the fact that it was that discovery that cemented our view of the solar system as having the sun at the center.
