Getting around

Essential things to include in all articles

When creating new articles and improving current ones, please include these things. Bold points are super-important!

  • Short summary, what is it that we're dealing with?
  • History and/or discovery
  • An infobox. (e.g Template:PlanetInfobox for planets and moons, if applicable) Make sure your infobox has a good photo, if any.
  • A nice image gallery of at least 3 images
  • Additional Trivia
  • If you are creating an article about a moon, please do not forget to include the moons template. For example, if you're going to create an article about Phoebe, don't forget to include {{Saturn Moons}} on your article.
  • Please do not copy entire articles or paragraphs from Wikipedia. You may copy snippets, sentences and information from infoboxes from Wikipedia, but you may not copy entire pages. This could be considered as plagiarism and get this wiki sued.

Did you know...

  • ...that the axis of Jupiter is only tilted by 3.13 degrees, meaning Jupiter does not experience seasons like Earth.
  • ...of all the planets and moons other than Earth, Mars is the most hospitable to life. This is because humans would burn on Mercury, The Moon and Venus ,humans would be pulverized by the gravity and atmospheric pressure on the gas & ice giants Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, andhumans would freeze on worlds such as Europa, Tethys, Miranda, Triton and Pluto. Mars may have a CO2 filled atmosphere & no water, but with correct protection and enough oxygen, humans would be able to (temporarily) survive on Mars.
  • ...that in the book 'Gulliver's Travels', the author Jonathon Swift wrote about two moons of Mars, about 150 years before they were discovered? (the martian moons Phobos and Deimos)
