oh crap, and we haven't even figured out what to do with the first one yet!

This is a repeat, I think.

Earth has a new moon, as does Halloween.



New moons everywhere.

Pretty soon they'll be finding planets in other solar systems and other such nonsense like
that.

Freaky, no wonder every 5k years or so I feel an extra tug on deez...
Prime!

Wouldn't it suck if THAT was the moon we actually landed on?

So is this one made of Cheese too?

All things out there are moons of the earth bcouse the whole universe orbits around the earth, that's

Hello. I am Larry. I am going to smash your planet!

Actually, this one's much smaller. Plus, if we land on it, when it leaves Earth's orbit 7k years from now it'll go spinning into outer space with Earthling footprints! Now that's

Scientists are now saying that this new moon orbits Michael Jackson's ego, not the Earth as previously assumed.

Alienmagic--LMAO!!!

Ouroborus: Then it's a good idea that it eventually will leave its orbit... but why wait 7k years?

Stupid question.

Does our (original) moon have a name? All the other planets' moons have cool names.. Our is just... The moon.

Prefcustomer:

The moon is Luna. I am Lupa.

Just so we have that straight.

Old Hat: Jules Verne predicted this way back when in his novel "From the Earth to the Moon."
 
2001-10-27 05:29:58 PM  
the moon is named luna. that word is where the words, lunatic, lunacy, and loony come from...
 
2001-10-27 05:44:15 PM  
But "Luna" is just Latin for ... Moon. The same goes for "Terra" and "Sol" which are often used for Earth and Sun.
 
2001-10-27 05:46:19 PM  
But then again, I've always thought of Earth, Moon, and Sun as their respective names anyway, not generic terms. (The generic terms are planet, satellite and star.)
 
2001-10-27 06:47:30 PM  
Good point, Jraxis... it's OUR Moon, it's THEIR satellite. =/
 
2001-10-27 07:45:39 PM  
The "real" names of things:

Sun = Sol
Earth = Terra
Moon = Luna

MWA HA HA HA!!

Silly mortals, you are all doomed. It is not another moon! It is the Death Star!!!
