The Existence of Round Planets

The Existence of Round Planets

The life cycle of a planet usually begins when the gravity of the star attracts clouds of rocks and dust until it forms into a blob that attracts more matter towards its center.

Since gravity works in all directions equally, this is the reason why planets are round-shaped instead of any other form.

Imperfectly Perfect-Sphered Planets

Although the roundness of the planets is not perfect, every planet belongs in its own spherical category, like the Earth is an "oblate spheroid."

Due to the differences in the planet's sizes, bigger planets such as Saturn may gather extra mass around its middle area and get thicker.

The Shape of Moons and Asteroid

The Shape of Moons and Asteroid

The idea of a cube-shaped moon is not entirely impossible. However, for it to happen, it will take a much longer time before we are able to see one.

Asteroids and moons are generally smaller than planets therefore it goes to show that they both have lesser gravity thus they are less round than planets.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
