Can Moons Have Their Own Moons?
Moons are amazing natural satellites that orbit planets and other objects in space. While most moons orbit planets, some moons also orbit asteroids and Kuiper belt objects. But are there “moons of moons”? Is it possible to have such a system in which moons have moons orbiting them? The answer to this question is more complicated than it looks.
But don’t worry we have got that covered for you in this post.
Let’s try to look at this question from the lens of science and theory.
Moons are thought to be formed when a planet or object is hit by a large object, such as a comet. The impact creates a debris field that eventually coalesces into a moon. Most moons are less than one-tenth the size of the body they orbit. In our solar system only two planets Mercury and Venus do not have moons. Why? Don’t worry we will answer that question for you later in this video and it will help us get an insight to the original question we asked about “moons of moons”.
The gas giants are big and stable and have dozens of moons orbiting them. Can the moons of all these planets have moons?
