Plutos Moons Nix and Hydra

Nix and Hydra, that are the Pluto’s small moons was discovered by astronomers using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope,in 2005.The two moons are nearly 5,000 times fainter than Pluto and are about two to three times farther from Pluto than its large moon, Charon.Nix is dimmer and smaller than Hydra. Astronomers think that both moons are smaller than 50 miles (80 km) in diameter.

Saturns Icy Moon Helene

On June 18, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft flew within 4,330 miles (6,968 kilometers) of Helene’s surface. It was the second closest approach to Helene of the entire mission.Cassini passed from Helene’s night side to the moon’s sunlit side.NASA’s Cassini spacecraft’s first flight to Helene took place on March 10, 2010, when Cassini flew within 1,131 miles (1,820 kilometers) of the moon.

Asteroid 2009 BD and Earth

An asteroid called 2009 BD came within 215000 miles of Earth According to scientists asteroid is a small object only 7 meters which doesnt represent any threats Scientists think that after the close pass, asteroid 2009 BD didn’t recede into the depths of space, it will remain within 10 lunar distances of us for the next month or so.

The Water of Lunar Magma

NASAs researchers has measured for the first time water from the moon in the form of tiny globules of molten rock which have turned to glass like material trapped within crystals This measurements show that the water content of lunar magma is 100 times higher than previous studies suggested. Water contents ranging from 615 to 1410 parts per million

Magma Ocean Under Jupiter Moon IO

According to new data analysis from NASA’s Galileo spacecraft, scientists discovered magma ocean under Jupiter’s volcanic moon Io. Jupiter’s moon Io is the most volcanically active moon of all the solar system and it throws annually on its surface lava about 100 times larger than Earth.The new research was conducted by scientists at the University of California,

Super Moon Expect Earthquakes Extreme Weather

This Super Moon will occur on March 19 when it is in its closest position to the earth this year.Full Moons in general can cause havoc, and this one for sure will not go unnoticed by anyone.Get ready for what could be moderate to severe weather patterns, increased seismic activity, tsunamis and more volcanic eruptions than normal. This phenomenon includes the days leading up to March 19 and the days after until around March 22nd. We experienced extreme weather conditions under the last Super Moons in 1955, 1974, 1992 and 2005.
