    Jupiter Now Has 69 Moons

    The planet Jupiter is a beast: Three-hundred-and-seventeen times the mass of the Earth, mostly made of metallic hydrogen, and at the center of an astonishing collective of orbiting natural bodies.

    In fact, Jupiter's satellites form a shrunken version of a full planetary system: from the tightly bound larger Galilean moons (orbiting in their Laplacian mean-motion resonances, akin to places like TRAPPIST-1) to the remarkable array of smaller moonlets that encircle this world out to more than 30 million kilometers.

    These bodies circle Jupiter in anywhere from about 7 hours to an astonishing 1,000 days.

    Until recently the cataloged satellites totaled 67 in number. But only the innermost 15 of these orbit Jupiter in a prograde sense (in the direction of the planet's spin). The rest are retrograde, and are likely captured objects - other pieces of the solar system's solid inventory that strayed into Jupiter's gravitational grasp.

    That population of outer moons is mostly small stuff, only a few are 20-60 kilometers in diameter, most are barely 1-2 kilometers in size, and increasingly difficult to spot.

    Now astronomers Scott Sheppard, David Tholen, and Chadwick Trujillo have added two more; bringing Jupiter's moon count to 69.

    number of jupiter moons has always been 69. it's a natural number of equilibrium. after violent sex it will settle down over eons of restive state to 69, much like coitus continuous - the soixante neuf sextisfaction of sinkies with the status quo.

    That explains, why PAP white paper policies cum out with 6.9 mil population. Singapore is up for a big screw!

    If you can see the moon during 69 you're obviously doing it wrong
