Walkabout the Galaxy
water on the moon; Philae lander
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
Charm quark Addie Dove is over the Moon about the announcement that water molecules have been found in minerals all over the lunar surface. We also take a look back at our friend the Philae lander which bounced several times on a comet before coming to rest in a nook or a cranny. The surface of the comet is softer than fresh snow. Join us for a tour of the solar system, with spacecraft trivia and some random astroquarkiness thrown in for good measure.
Hey, get your TAG-sian out of here. That tickles! Cut it out, c'mon, I'm not kidding! OSIRIS-REx, I've been watching you watching me, and I thought we were friends going on a walkabout the solar system together, but that was a bit invasive. And now I see you spilled some of me out in to space. I was trying to help you out by spitting pebbles at you earlier, but now you come along and, pardon my french, fart inside me. Well, I hope it was better for you than it was for me. Bennu, because I'm worth it. (L'Oreal)
