Whats your favorite planet or moon in our solar system.

I love astronomy, I cannot read enough about space. I have been in love with space since my first episode of the original Star Trek back in 1970. That's when I started watching Star Trek, it first aired I think in 67. The moon of course was my first planetary object of study, I guess its everyone's. When the Hubble telescope was launched and put to use it opened a window that was nothing short of spectacular. I was so fascinated with the pictures it took that I would study each picture for hours. Of course even before Hubble Mariner took close pictures of the Planet Mars. The space exploration Satellites that followed were amazing, Galileo took pictures of Jupiter and its moons that were astonishing to say the least and then they crashed it into Jupiter which I though was beyond cool. Pioneer 11, Cassini/ Huygens, Voyager 2 took incredible pictures of the outer planets and their moons. My favorite is of course was Jupiter's moon Europa, Europa I feel most definitely has oceans and in that ocean is LIFE! The Mars Viking 1 and 2 and Pathfinder pictures really sort of put you on Mars. We have to push presidents to invest money in the exploration of space for the sake of future generations and also the priceless technological discoveries that go with the exploration of space.

To boldly go where no man has gone before.

Man must explore because simply, it is one of the main reasons why we are here.
You!

    Sorry, but I'm too earthbound to have any other favorite but Earth. However, I am a great believer in the benefits and necessities of space exploration and all of the discovery activities that accompany it. I think space is the next important frontier, provided we idiot humans don't blow Earth out of existence before then. But I do find some excitement and personal satisfaction when reading about projects and status updates.

    Pluto is a freaking planet. It goes around the sun and has a moon. That idiot African American cosmologist from the Natural History museum started all that crap. I never saw a astronomer so freaking egotistical in my life as that dude. I met him once and this kid asked him if there was water on the moon and he said no, so I said why didn't you tell him there was water ice on the moon and he ignored me. At least three billion tons of water ice was discovered on the moon or 60 feet deep by 5 square miles of water ice was discovered on the moon.

    Sometimes I want to smack people. Usually its people like that. I had some idiot try to tell me there were no liquids in space besides the liquids in space shuttles. There are lakes of liquid methane on one of the moons of jupiter.

    Its an amazing planet. Jupiter's radiation belt actually extends as far as Saturn.

    Europa is my favorite moon. Jupiter is my favorite planet outside of earth. It might offer some protection from meteors from outside our solar system. 2001 was a great movie with Jupiter becoming a sun.

    Jupiter has for sure saved this planet from destruction many thousands of times.
    Jupiter in my view is actually like a solar system of its own.
