Astronomy Science Image by NASA ~ October 02 1995 - Image Clarification: Mars, the red planet named for the Roman divine force of war, has two minor moons, Phobos and Deimos, whose names are gotten from the Greek for Fear and Panic. These Martian moons might well be caught space rocks beginning in the space rock belt in the middle of Mars and Jupiter or maybe from significantly more far off spans of the Solar System. In this 1977 Viking orbiter picture, the biggest moon, Phobos, is seen to be an intensely cratered space rock like article. It is around 17 miles crosswise over and dashes through the Martian sky finishing a circle in under 8 hours. Phobos is damned. It circles so near Mars, (around 3,600 miles over the surface contrasted with 250,000 miles for our Moon) that gravitational tidal strengths are dragging it down. In 100 million years or so it could collide with the surface or be broken by anxiety created by the persistent tidal strengths, the flotsam and jetsam shaping a ring around Mars.
