"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

Have you ever felt like you are at the edge of something unexpected? Something huge and undefined and as if opportunity is just waiting around the corner? I feel excited again! I will be leaving this place, this solar bubble and begin my exploration of the universe...My universe...the one inside of me!
Maybe that is one of the reasons I like space so much...because it is something that is just full of exploration. You know? Have you ever gazed at the heavens and wondered what was out there? Just look at them...here are some interesting little worlds that I have discovered (hidden ones that few pay attention to).
Here lies the moon Triton. A moon larger than Pluto that has geologic activity on its surface (well, geysers count, right). This moon boggles scientists because it orbits Neptune in a retrograde fashion (as in opposite direction of which the planet turns which is rare). Scientists have yet to explain how this is yet to be since this would imply it was captured (which defies even common logic?).
Now we are at Saturn...it's moon rather. This one is called Titan and is the only moon to have an atmosphere (well, at least thicker than Earth's). This moon is bigger than Mercury and may have frozen methane on the surface (which equals money). Selah!
And now entering Jupiter...this is Io. This is also known as the Lava World because that is basically what it is: a world full of lava. You would not want to be on this moon, not only because of the volcanic activity but also because Jupiter (as well as its 3 other large moons) constantly pull on the planet causing its "tidal" surface to rise 300 feet! Selah!
Last of all is Ida and it's little moon Dactyl. Ida is approximately 32 miles long (if I remember correctly) and has it's own lunar asteroid! Crazy, isn't it? Well, that's all thus far. I will have to post some other time. Anyway, hopefully I entertained myself with some cool and crazy images. Selah!
