Presentation Transcript


1. http://www.2dplay.com/orbit/orbit.swf* In class we discussed the ďcapture theoryĒ of the Moon. I said that capture is ďdynamicallyĒ unlikely. Try this game that simulates the dynamics of an object and try to put the object in orbit around of the planets. It is not so easy. But I mentioned that the moons of Mars are thought to have been captured. Why? More on caputre theory: http://www.windows.ucar.edu/tour/link=/earth/moon/capture_theory.html&edu=elem
