: The Moons of the Terran Solar System

 On Thursday, July 1. 2021 at 2:30 pm, the Wayne Public Library will feature part 3 of its three-part mini-series on the Terran Solar System. This program is titled “Episode 3: The Moons of the Terran Solar System”.

It will be a virtual program over Zoom™ presented by Mike Greene, Solar System Ambassador for NASA. This program will discuss the intriguing properties of several moons in the Terran Solar System. To date, 219 moons have been discovered in our Solar System. Most of the major planets, with the exception of Mercury and Venus, have at least one moon. Even some of our dwarf planets, such as Eris and Pluto, have small moons.

Once thought to be only cold, dead balls of rock, planetary moons have surprised scientists with their unique and sometimes puzzling characteristics. Some Solar System moons exhibit active volcanoes, geothermal geysers, subsurface salt water oceans, and bodies of liquid hydrocarbons and organic compounds on their surfaces. Besides the planet Mars, scientists believe that planetary moons offer the best chance to find evidence of past, or perhaps current biology, within our Solar System. Mike possesses extensive knowledge of NASA’s manned and unmanned missions from the past to the present and also what lies in the future. His goal as a Solar System Ambassador is to convey to his audience the same sense of pride and excitement that he still feels for this wonderful journey in which we are all participants.
