Moon-Forming Impact Dated
2014-04-03 04:49:12

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Using a new method for estimating the moon’s age, an international team of planetary scientists has determined that the satellite formed nearly 100 million years after the formation of the solar system, according to research published Thursday in the journal Nature. The study authors came to that conclusion based on measurements from the Earth’s interior, as well as computer simulations of the protoplanetary disk from which...

Citizen Scientists Prove Their Worth At Counting Lunar Craters
2014-03-14 11:52:38

[ Watch the Video: Crater Identification Variability Using Citizen Scientists ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Citizen scientists are just as good as real scientists when it comes to identifying craters on the moon, according to researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder. Researchers asked volunteers to count a particular patch of surface on the Moon using NASA images to identify craters and compared their results with professional crater counters. They...

Lunar Eclipse Makes Laser Ranging More Accurate
2014-02-12 07:28:43

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The full moon has long been linked to strange events and even stranger behavior, even though careful scrutiny has dispelled any association, according to Susan Brown of UC San Diego. So when scientists bounced signals off the lunar surface on full moon nights and only received faint echoes in return, they went looking for an explanation based in reason, not superstition. The most compelling evidence, though, arrived during another event...

Jade Rabbit Rover Says Goodbye
2014-01-27 15:33:51

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Over the weekend, China’s lunar rover said “Goodnight” to humanity. But even with a short lived mission the Chang’E-3 was still able to perform some science. The rover, also known as Jade Rabbit, suffered a crippling breakdown that hindered it from entering into hibernation mode as it prepared itself for a lunar night, which lasts about 14 Earth days. During a lunar night, the moon’s surface temperature can drop to nearly...

Lunar Impact Crater Has A Diverse Subsurface Mineralogy
2013-12-10 05:53:55

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The presence of a diverse group of minerals in the largest lunar impact crater could help scientists gain new insight into the Moon’s interior, as well as the evolution of its crust and mantle, claims new research appearing online in Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets. Dan Moriarty, a graduate student from Brown University, and his colleagues analyzed data collected from the Moon Mineralogy Mapper instrument aboard India's...

Origin Of Moon Water
2013-09-11 08:38:28

[ Watch the Video: Origins Of Moon's Water Explored ] John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Recent studies by NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) have found that the Moon is wetter than previously thought - though it is still drier than the driest desserts on Earth. In turn, this has generated renewed interest in identifying the source of this water. Now, a team from The Open University in the United Kingdom has found that a young, still forming Earth may...

Moon Mystery: GRAIL Data Show How Gravitational Anomalies Developed
2013-05-31 06:19:45

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers from Purdue University and MIT have solved the long-standing mystery of why the moon´s gravitational force is stronger in some areas than in others. This irregular gravitational force has been observed ever since the first satellites were sent to the moon, when orbiting probes would pass over certain craters and impact basins, and periodically swerve off course before plunging toward the lunar surface and then...

Slooh To Broadcast Moon's Asteroid Collision
2013-05-20 14:27:46

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An organization aimed at bringing celestial event programming to everyone with a computer, iPhone or iPad is planning to broadcast the fiery explosion that took place on the moon just a few months ago. On March 17 NASA astronomers witnessed how the Moon was rocked by a violent impact from an 88-pound asteroid, creating a flash nearly 10 times as bright as anything the space agency had seen before. Now Slooh says it wants to bring the...

Moon's Water Supply Came From Earth, Not From Comet Impacts
2013-05-09 13:34:08

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Prior to the Apollo Moon missions, scientists conjectured that the Moon would be extremely dry, that even below the surface of the Magnificent Desolation little or no water would be present. But the rocks brought back by the lunar explorers revealed that the Moon, while still dry compared to Earth, contained a surprising amount of water. Furthermore, the composition of the Moon led scientists to the current Big Impact...

Author Andre Williams shows how lunar landscape supports biblical descriptions; Washington, D.C, Feb 17, 2013 - "What do you see when you look at the moon?" (PRWEB) February 12, 2013 For author and artist Andre Williams, the images of Africa, motherland of the human race, is clearly visible. So visible, in fact, that he has sketched them out and posted them online. "These images are evidence that The Continent of Africa is also on the moon; it is also reflected in the universe around us,"...

Saturn's moon Epimetheus -- Epimetheus is a moon of Saturn that was probably first observed by Walker and Audouin Dollfus in 1966 when they discovered Janus, but the situation was confused since Janus is in a very similar orbit and so Walker officially shares the discovery of Epimetheus with Fountain and Larson who showed in 1978 that there were two satellites involved. The situation was clarified in 1980 by Voyager 1. Epimetheus and Janus are "co-orbital". Janus' orbital radius from...
