The satellites of the planets of the solar system … Once upon a time they were not known, or they were not interested, but now they are at the forefront of astronomical research. Surprisingly, not all of them are similar to our moon. “Small” members of the solar system does not cause lack of interest. What surprises await us in these alien moons?
The satellites of the planets – a body of natural or synthetic origin, like the planet, but smaller, orbiting planets.
In relation to satellite earth is not alone. Most of the other planets in the solar system also have moons. The number of satellites there are between 1 to as much as 67 Earth to Jupiter. Two of our planets, Mercury and Venus have no satellites. Saturn – 63, Uranus – and Neptune 27 – 14. 5 satellites of Pluto, which include Charon. It’s so big in comparison with himself Pluto, astronomers are taking these two sites for a double planet, rather than for the planet and satellite. Also satellites vary greatly in size. The smallest satellite of Mars – Deimos with a diameter of about 10 miles (11 km). The largest moon in the solar system, the planet Jupiter – Ganymede, with a diameter of 3280 miles (5262 km). This makes Ganymede, larger than the planet Mercury. For comparison, the Earth’s satellite 2160 miles (3476 km) in diameter.
Stars and planets, galaxies, moons, asteroids and meteorites – everything about space and space objects on our channel “universe.” The most complete collection of documentary films about space, its structure and life. Watch every day new documentaries about the universe, penetrate into all the mysteries of outer space and find out all mysteries of the universe! We reveal all the secrets of the cosmos and the universe, mysteries of the solar system and galaxy.
All of the most stunning objects in the Universe – pulsars, quasars, black holes, planets giants and terrestrial planets will reveal to you its secrets. You will get acquainted closer with the planets Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Mercury and other planets with strange galaxies and their satellites. Do not forget to tell about the planet Earth and its satellite, the moon. The documentaries offers stunning Hubble Space Telescope images and terrestrial telescopes, to help develop the science of astronomy, interesting space exploration, observation of the stars, constellations and star of the sun.
We also try to answer the question whether there is extraterrestrial life, UFO with aliens, and where space may be other civilizations. We put an end to disputes about the matter, and the infinity of time. The first look at neutrinos and dark matter. We learn about the mortal danger posed by asteroids, meteorites, meteors and comets for life in the universe created by the Big Bang.
