[phys.org] Hubble finds new Neptune moon - Page 3

It was a joke lol. thumb.gif

Awesome, I suppose i kinda look at it like this.

 

Has orbit around Star = Planet.

Has orbit around Planet = Moon.

 

With the exception of the asteroid belts.  Of course size would depend on classification as well, Seeing as this is 12 miles, I would consider it an asteroid that has been captured, Thus becoming a moon :D

A moon is an object in orbit around a planet. Look at Mars' crappy little space potato rocks. This makes me sad that it's eluded detection for so long. It's just so dark and we can't see anything too far away. The best resolution picture of Pluto is like 150x150 pixels. We need to build a huge telescope in space with a massive mirror after Hubble gets decommissioned and possibly send it to orbit something far away. That way, we can find all of the space. All of it.

James Webb Space Telescope. Look it up, it's the successor to the Hubble Space Telescope and it's due to launch in 2018 if I remember correctly. Here's a good overview video about the JWST and its capabilities from an astronomy channel I'm subscribed to on Youtube.

I say we cut 1% out of every government agency and give it to NASA. After that, some of the rocket scientists here can start a crowd-sourced, uber-huge space telescope. I never thought about IR helping, actually. But it makes sense. If humans could see IR, we'd see all endothermic and many exothermic animals glowing. If a space rock is emitting heat, we'd be able to find it. If it's redshifted, we could find it.

They should start a kickstarter for new stuff biggrin.gif

In the same sense, we found lots of large space rocks in the Oort Cloud bigger than Pluto, which led to the definition being established. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

The Oort Cloud is hypothetical.

Oh, derp. I meant Kuiper Belt. I'll fix that.
