You know that dark side of the moon is pretty ******* bright.
User avatar #162 to #14 - wishingwell (05/07/2013) [-]
There is no 'dark side of the moon' - it rotates, as we do, so we see different sides of the moon all the time.
#186 to #162 - knowstoomuch (05/07/2013) [-]
The moon does not rotate, the same side is always facing the earth, because it's center of mass is in a different spot from its geometric center. I don't know the exact science behind it, but I read about it in HS physics.
User avatar #199 to #186 - enkmaster ONLINE (05/07/2013) [-]
Actually, yes it does. We see the same side because the moon rotates and exactly the same rate as earth due to us orbiting it and it orbiting us.
User avatar #192 to #186 - option (05/07/2013) [-]
actually, the moon does rotate. It rotates at the same speed as it revolves around earth so that we see the same side all of the time.

There you go, now I don't have to bother typing out an explanation. You did it for me.
User avatar #202 to #186 - wishingwell (05/07/2013) [-]
It's a long time since i've had HS physics, but still it does rotates - just slower than we do (some 25-ish days in one rotation - the same time it takes to orbit the earth ) - Tidal looking, if i remember correctly.

But still the term "dark side of the moon" is just plain wrong - it is often fully illuminated by the sun or by light hitting earth and then hitting the moon. (don't know what to call a 'day moon', but i'm sure we've all seen it)
User avatar #217 to #202 - srskate (05/07/2013) [-]
The dark side should really be called the far side, the side we never see.

The moon does rotate, but it rotates at the same speed at which it revolves, so we always see the same side.

...Its a joke.

I know. I gave you a thumps up before i wrote, but ofc - you couldn't see it.

sorry was this a joke? i cant tell sarcasm through text. (I dont mean to sound like a dick)

Haha i get what you mean, it was just a joke mate.

Man,. our solar system is interesting as **** .
User avatar #209 to #10 - ZakisBak (05/07/2013) [-]
Think of how interesting ours is.
How little we know about ours still.
How many other solar systems in other galaxies there are.
Think of all we could be missing out on.

i wish i could be alive when men go into another galaxy

Maybe if you'd quit wasting your time with nukes and start researching a way to get out of here you could!

This is one of favorite sweaters. Got it at the Griffith Observatory, i loved it.(only been there once)

Seriously man? Get over Pluto. We all grew up with it as a planet, I don't see why its a big deal that it isnt a planet now.
#219 to #112 - anon (05/07/2013) [-]
When I was young, I learned a mnemonic to remember the nine planets in german. "Pluto" was there for "Planeten", or in english, "planets". Now, without pluto, it's:
"Mein Vater erklärt mir jeden Sonntag unsere neun."
"My father teaches me every sunday our nine."
And that my friend, is just **** .

I feel ashamed for being an astrophysics student and not being aware of this mission.

Well, what about Frank F. Borman II, James A. Lovell Jr.,, and William A. Anders? They are the only humans not in that picture as they were on the Apollo 8 mission which is when the photo (AKA Earthrise) was taken during Apollo 8.

I read this in Morgan Freeman's voice for some reason. It was beautiful.

I love Science Fiction novels and movies, but when I see actual photos of space I get scared. Imagine being in a room where you can see the floor, and the general area around you, but everywhere beyond that is just black. The uncertainty scares the hell out of me.

that or I'm racist
