Nah, there have been thousands of asteroids, dozens of comets, and several dwarf planets discovered in the last decade or two. Most of these objects have eluded us so long because they are so small and dark.That's pretty cool. With all the photos of distant nebulas and galaxies, I think it is rad that something new, even if it's just a moon, can be discovered so (relatively) close. I kinda assumed there wasn't really anything left to discover in our solar system.
Wikipedia is my friend lol. As are random books from Books-a-Million. I've never taken a college physics, astronomy, or other science class and I think I have a good understanding of science in general.Yeah, it kinda blew my mind when I found out about the dwarf planets and such (like 8 months ago). Excuse the naive post, I'm kinda out of my field here. I felt a little silly about posting this, then going on to read the threads about the trojan asteroid etc. It's all cool stuff, make me wish I had taken some astro classes.
I foresee a long session of wiki surfing in my very near future...Wikipedia is my friend lol.
Strong work. You definitely seem to have an excellent understanding.I've never taken a college physics, astronomy, or other science class and I think I have a good understanding of science in general.
Yerp, my thoughts exactly.Wait a minute, there are already two other moons?!?!?!
