Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to NASA, the Hubble Space Telescope has revealed that Neptune has been hiding another moon, bringing the total count of moons orbiting the planet to 14. The new moon, named S/2004 N 1, is no more than 12 miles across, making it the smallest known moon in the Neptunian system. NASA said this moon is so small that it is about 100 million times fainter than the faintest star that can be seen with the naked eye. The moon is so...

Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online In 2006, Uruguayan astronomer Tabaré Gallardo provided evidence that two asteroids, Crantor and 2000 SN331, had orbital periods similar to that of the planet Uranus — roughly 84 Earth-years. Now, some seven years later, researchers Carlos de la Fuente Marcos and Raúl de la Fuente Marcos, at the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM), have confirmed that not two, but three large asteroids...

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Predicting the weather is difficult. With varying pressures, planetary rotation and various other factors, weather systems on Earth border on chaos. But, believe it or not, predicting the weather on the third rock from the sun is rather straightforward compared to predicting the atmospheric motions of the gas giants that lay beyond the asteroid belt. The primary reason is that, unlike Earth, the Jovian worlds do not have...

Retrograde Motion -- Retrograde motion is the orbital motion of a body in a direction opposite that which is normal to spatial bodies within a given system. 'Retrograde' derives from the Latin words retro, backwards, and gradus, step. In the Solar system, mostly everything rotates in the same sense: all major planets orbit the Sun counterclockwise as seen from the pole star (Polaris). Most planets spin in the same sense, including Earth. The same happens with the orbital motions of the...

Planet -- A planet is a body of considerable mass that orbits a star and that doesn't produce energy through nuclear fusion. Until recently, only nine were known (all of them in our own Solar system). As of the end of 2002 over 100 are known, with all of the new discoveries being extrasolar planets. Astronomers often call asteroids minor planets, and call the larger planetary bodies (those which are commonly called planets) major planets. Planets within the solar system can be...

Gas Giant
2004-10-19 04:45:41

Gas Giant -- A gas giant is a generic astronomical term invented by the science fiction writer James Blish to describe any large planet that is not composed mostly of rock or other solid matter. Gas giants may still have a solid core - in fact, it is expected that such a core is probably required for a gas giant to form - but the majority of its mass is in the form of gas (or gas compressed into a liquid state). Unlike rocky planets, gas giants do not have a well-defined surface. There...

Solar System

The Solar System refers to the area in space that is dominated by our own Sun. It is comprised of the Sun and its associated astronomical objects that are held in its gravitational orbit. The Solar System was formed as a result of the collapse of a giant molecular cloud approximately 4.6 billion years ago. The mass of this system is located almost entirely in the Sun. Apart from the Sun, a high percentage of the remainder of the system’s mass is located in the eight solitary planets that...
