1. How did the Cassini Mission end?
2. Why don't we have a solar eclipse every month?
3. How inclined is the moon to the earth's plane of orbit?
1. It plunged into Saturn's atmosphere.

2. Because the moon has a slight axis tilt so it is not perfectly in line with the Earth and Sun.

3. It is about 6*, but it might be 7, or 8.

Yeah I didn't know off the top of my head. Ig I'll go.

1. What is libration, latitudinal libration, diurnal libration, and longitudinal libration.

2. What are the particles/material thrown out as a result from a meteor impact (or volcanic processes) called?

3. What was the first dwarf planet discovered, what is its interior mainly made up of?

1. Libration is the slight oscillation of the moon, which allows us to see more than half of it. It's split up into the 3 kinds you mentioned. Latitudinal libration is bc the moon has a slight axial tilt. Diurnal libration is bc of the earth's spin, since a stationary point will be moving relative to the centers of the earth and moon. Longitudinal libration is bc the moon's orbit is eccentric.
2. Ejecta
3. Ceres; ice

1. How did the dawn mission end?
2. What are moonquakes?
3. What is the Cassini division and how is it related to Mimas?

1. It ended after all of its fuel ran out.

2. Moonquakes are like Earthquakes, except instead of being caused by tectonic plates. They are caused by a variety of factors like tides, meteorites, or by thermal expansion.

3. The Cassini division is a gap in Saturn's rings that was caused by the gravity of Mimas..?

lmao, it's aight, in that case, my turn.


1. What dwarf planet is the Tombaugh Regio located on? Who was it named after? What is its composition? What is its shape?

2. What percentage of the asteroid belts mass is composed of Ceres. What type asteroid is Ceres?

3. What type of orbit did Oumuamua have? All objects that have these types of orbits have an eccentricity greater than what number?

4. Which mission had a gold disk containing information about Earth attached to it?
