Solar System: Things to Know This Week

See our home planet from Mars, learn about our latest Discovery missions, see stunning imagery from the Cassini mission and more!

1. Our Home

The powerful HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter took this incredible image of our home and moon. The image combines two separate exposures taken on Nov. 20, 2016.

2. Our Latest Missions of Discovery

We’ve selected two new missions to explore the early solar system. Lucy, a robotic spacecraft scheduled to launch in October 2021, is slated to arrive at its first destination, a main belt asteroid, in 2025. From 2027 to 2033, Lucy will explore six Jupiter Trojan asteroids. These asteroids are trapped by Jupiter’s gravity in two swarms that share the planet’s orbit, one leading and one trailing Jupiter in its 12-year circuit around the sun.

+Learn more

Psyche, targeted to launch in October 2023, will explore one of the most intriguing targets in the main asteroid belt–a giant metal asteroid, known as 16 Psyche. The asteroid is about 130 miles (210 kilometers) in diameter and thought to be comprised mostly of iron and nickel, similar to Earth’s core.

+ Details

3. Image From Cassini  

Cassini took so many jaw-dropping photos last year, how could anyone choose just 10? Well, the Cassini team didn’t. Here are 17 amazing photos from Saturn and its moons last year.

4. The Colors of Mars

Impact craters have exposed the subsurface materials on the steep slopes of Mars. However, these slopes often experience rockfalls and debris avalanches that keep the surface clean of dust, revealing a variety of hues, like in this enhanced-color image from our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, representing different rock types. 

+ Learn more

5. More From New Horizons

Even though our New Horizons mission flew by Pluto in 2015, the scientific discoveries keep coming. Using a model similar to what meteorologists use to forecast weather and a computer simulation of the physics of evaporating ices, scientists have found evidence of snow and ice features that, until now, had only been seen on Earth.

I remember
the last time,
it was winter too,

there was no snow yet
but dark as it can be,
except you

hello moon

singing our tune,
you know,
dancing by myself,
(all the right moves)

waiting on the bus,

talking with no one,
except you

hello moon
here I am again
going home
alone

sitting on the bus,

singing out our tune,
people are watching me
you know,
wondering what I do,

going home
going home
going home alone

The Moon in the Signs

The Sign the Moon falls under shows our habits, reactions, and instincts. It also shows how we express, or deal with, our emotions at their most basic state. Our Lunar Sign shows our innermost needs. Our Moon sign is most obvious in our homes or in private, as this is when tend to feel comfortable enough to react instinctively. The Moon also shows how we “mother” or “baby” ourselves, and our loved ones.

Many Moons

When I was a little boy,
it  seemed to me that there
were many moons.
My grandmother had a moon,
and my other grandmother had
one too. We had a moon over 
backyard, and my best friend
art had moonlight in his bedroom
from his moon
when we visited our relatives
in Chicago, I was not surprised
to discover their moon.
Then one night, as we returned
from a visit to my grandmother
I watched out of the car’s back
window and saw her moon
follow us home.
Her moon was our moon
there was just one moon !
Now the sky seemed so empty.

Duane Michals, 1989

following one's dreams

do you feel the rhythm
dancing in our bones
you and me, we are meant to be
even if the world is dying

I can feel how the wind
sings me the truth
we will always have time
to find our way home

the moon told me
to follow my dreams
so, I took you by the hand
and walked into the sea

I wanted to touch the stars
and it occurred to me
that you were the sun
the same one from my dreams

we found home in each other
at the bottom of the sea
we saw the waves rocking
all mighty above us and we with them

to sleep
to sleep
to sleep, my love

Tattoo

Sirius/Remus

Summary: Sirius gets a tattoo and Remus loves it.

A/N: I’m in Wolfstar hell help.

Words: 401

Sirius got his first tattoo when he was 16. A mobile illustration of the moon going around the Earth now covered the right side of his lower ribs. He presented it to his friends proudly.

Even if it means oblivion, friends, I’ll welcome it, because it won’t be nothing. We’ll be alive again in a thousand blades of grass, and a million leaves; we’ll be falling in the raindrops and blowing in the fresh breeze; we’ll be glittering in the dew under the stars and the moon out there in the physical world, which is our true home and always was.
—  The Amber Spyglass, Phillip Pullman

On the Moon, the Earth never rises – or sets. If you were to sit on the surface of the Moon, you would see the Earth just hang in the sky. This is because the Moon always keeps the same side toward the Earth. Curiously, the featured image does picture the Earth setting over a lunar edge. This was possible because the image was taken from a spacecraft orbiting the Moon - specifically the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). In fact, LRO orbits the Moon so fast that, from the spacecraft, the Earth appears to set anew about every two hours. The featured image captured one such Earthset about three months ago. By contrast, from the surface of the Earth, the Moon sets about once a day – with the primary cause being the rotation of the Earth. LRO was launched in 2009 and, while creating a detailed three dimensional map of the Moon’s surface, is also surveying the Moon for water and possible good landing spots for future astronauts.

Earth in Full View : The Apollo 17 crew caught this breathtaking view of our home planet as they were traveling to the moon on Dec. 7, 1972. Its the first time astronauts were able to photograph the South polar ice cap. Nearly the entire coastline of Africa is clearly visible, along with the Arabian Peninsula.

About Ganondorf´s speech in Wind Waker

(FYI This is gonna be about why I wouldn’t label Ganondorf as “good all along” and “just wanted to help his people” based on that speech alone.)

People are so quick to “forgive” Ganondorf after his speech in WW, but I dont think it’s good to just listen to that one speech and judge his entire character based on that.

His infamous speech is touching, and puts him into a new light,  it’s definitely important dont get me wrong but, reading through it again…

“My country lay within a vast desert. When the sun rose into the sky, a burning wind punished my lands, searing the world. And when the moon climbed into the dark of night, a frigid gale pierced our homes. No matter when it came, the wind carried the same thing… Death.  But the winds that blew across the green fields of Hyrule brought something other than suffering and ruin.

I coveted that wind, I suppose.”

-Ganondorf, Wind Waker

He doesnt really make much mention of the whole “I just wanted to save my people and have them live better lives” that people are getting from it. He mostly talks about himself.

And yes, you could argue that it doesnt really contradict the idea that Ganondorf only wanted to help his people but, have you all forgotten that WW!Ganondorf is OoT!Ganondorf but older?

Have you all forgotten that OoT!Ganon didnt treat his fellow Gerudo all that well?

We can´t just ignore OoT!Ganon because he is WW!Ganon, he is who he was back when he supposedly “coveted” the wind of Hyrule. OoT!Ganon is essential to understand WW!Ganon. You cant just say “that was in the past!”, especially because that past is exactly what Ganon is talking about in his infamous speech.

First of all there is this Gossip Stone:

“They say that Ganondorf is not
satisfied with ruling only the
Gerudo and aims to conquer all
of Hyrule! “

-Gossip Stone, Ocarina of Time

Which doesnt sound all that benevolent to me, but hey, its just a Gossip Stone, right? But that’s not all.

As soon as Ganon gained the Triforce of Power in OoT he takes over Hyrule, but remember, all of the other Gerudo seem to be left behind in the desert.

Their only leader aside from Ganondorf (Nabooru) is completely brainwashed,  and its implied all the other Gerudo were brainwashed too:

“Without the old witches, the gang
of thieves isn’t all that scary”

-Carpenter guys after you beat Twinrova, Ocarina of Time

Nabooru herself is also shown to detest Ganondorf and doesnt accept hima s their ruler, and this was before the timeskip:

“First of all, let me introduce
myself. I’m Nabooru of the Gerudo.
I’m a lone wolf thief.
But don’t get me wrong!
Though we’re both thieves, I’m
completely different from
Ganondorf.
With his followers, he stole
from women and children, and he
even killed people!
A kid like you may not know this,
but the Gerudo race consists only
of women. Only one man is born
every hundred years…
Even though our laws say that
lone male Gerudo must become
King of the Gerudo, I’ll never
bow to such an evil man!“

- Nabooru, Ocarina of Time

Also, ALttP´s backstory tells us how exactly Ganondorf aquired the Triforce of Power in the first place, and its not a pretty story.

“One day, quite by accident, a gate to the Golden Land of the Triforce was opened by a gang of thieves skilled in the black arts. This land was like no other. In the gathering twilight, the Triforce shone from its resting place high above the world. In a long running battle, the leader of the thieves fought his way past his followers in a lust for the Golden Power. After vanquishing his own followers, the leader stood triumphant over the Triforce and grasped it with his blood- stained hands. He heard a whispered voice: “If thou has a strong desire or dream, wish for it…” And in reply, the roaring laughter of the brigand leader echoed across time and space and even reached the far-off land of Hyrule.“

-A Link to the Past instruction manual

Ganon literally killed his fellow thieves, his partners that were with him at the time, to have the power for himself. And who else could his fellow thieves have been but fellow Gerudo?

And yes, as of the currently established canon, this would also be something WW!Ganon did in the past, as the only difference between the events of Ocarina of Time in the Downfall Time, that leads to ALttP, and the Adult Timeline that leads to WW, is the fact that Link either loses or wins against Ganon in the final battle.

Look, I really like Ganondorf as a character, and especially WW!Ganondorf, he is awesome and we need more, just more stuff like that. And I dont doubt he has grown to be a better person that regrets the past, but that doesnt erase the fact that he has commited atrocius crimes out of self-centeredness in the past, not just against the Hylians, Kokiri, Gorons and Zora, but also to his fellow Gerudo, and nothing he did really seems to have ended up helping them in any way.

Answers

1. Mars. You might be surprised, but this image taken by our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is of a light-toned deposit on the Martian surface. Some shapes in the terrain suggest erosion by a fluid moving north to south.

2. Earth. This image taken by our Earth Observing-1 satellite shows Lake Frome in central Australia. In this image, the salt lake appears bone-dry, filled with off-white sediment. This area of Australia receives 149 to 216 millimeters of rainfall a year on average, and the basins pass most of their time as saltpans.

3. Mercury. Our MESSENGER spacecraft captured this image of Mercury during a fly by in October 2008. It shows previously uncharted regions of the planet that have large craters with an internal smoothness similar to Earth’s own moon. It is thought that these craters were to have been flooded by lava flows that are old but not as old as the surrounding more highly cratered surface.

4. Earth. Surprisingly, this image take from the International Space Station shows the western half of the Arabian peninsula in Saudi Arabia. It not only contains large expanses of sand and gravel, but extensive lava fields known as haraat.

5. Saturn. Although this pattern of waves is similar to those seen on Jupiter, this is actually a picture of Saturn. The pattern of an iconic surfer’s wave, has been observed in many places all over the universe, including at the edges of Earth’s magnetic environment.

6. Mars. This image was taken by our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and shows dunes of sand-sized materials that have been trapped on the floors of many Martian craters. The dunes are linear, thought to be due to shifting wind directions.

7. Left: Europa. Right: Frying Pan. Europa is one of Jupiter’s moons, and is about the same size as Earth’s moon.

8. Ceres. This image taken by our Dawn spacecraft shows an intriguing mountain on dwarf planet Ceres protruding from a relatively smooth area.

9. Earth. This image of the Bazman volcano is located in a remote region of souther Iran. While the volcano has the classic cone shape of a stratovolcano, it is also heavily dissected by channels that extend downwards from the summit.

10. Earth. This image of the Great Sandy Desert in northwest Australia shows a variety of dune forms across the region. The photo was taken by the Expedition 35 crew from the International Space Station.
