Because its average density is less than the earth's, it would take 81 moons to weigh as much as our globe. all the headlines these days, it seems appropriate to give some attention to the earth's old natural space companion, the moon. Since the dawn of history, the moon has undoubtedly been the chief celestial object to attract the attention and wor.der of the human race. Nothing else in the sky has been the inspiration of so much poetry, folklore, and popular misconception. The moon probably was launch- led; like Sputnilc, from ths earth. I The launching power probably was some violent tidal upheaval when the earth was a great, liquid mass. The moon's speed, like Sputnik's, earth. Its surface the earth's, and its earth's gravity, slowed down the These tid :s spinning uir.il . the mood was in a position where friction could no longer act.

Technically, this is because the moon rotates once on its axis as it revolves once around the e.irth (the moon shows all sides to the sun.)

Today the moon revolves once around the earth in 27 days, seven hours, and 43 minutes. Actually, the time be'Jween two new moons is longer—29 days, 12 hours, and 44 minutes, because of • complications caused by the motion of the eartinnoon combinatiir. around the sun.

Bu'; it server in the middle of the track sees only the left side of the horse. However, perhaps the simplest explanation is that the earth, with its greater gravity, has "latched on" to one face of the planets in our solar system. Jupiter leads with 12, Saturn lias nine. Uranus five, Neptune two, and • Mars two. The oddest of the satellites is Piiobos, one of the two of Mars. Phobos, only five miles in diameter, revolves about Mars much faster than the planet turns on its axis. Therefore. Phobos rises in the west and sets in the east.
