Phobos And Deimos

Phobos and Deimos are the two satellite of Mars. They have been guessed first by Jonathan Swift in his fictional story: Gulliver’s travels, published in 1726 (at this time, no one could see Phobos and Deimos with a telescope, they were not enough powerful). He even guessed the distance from Mars that these two satellite are. Swift could guess that Mars had two satellite by using the theory of harmonic numbers (Nature always follow an harmonic disposition) and knowing that Earth as 1 satellite and Jupiter 4 (the number believed at this time). But how about her distance from Mars? It is really interesting. Coincidences never exist, there is always an explanation behind anything. Phobos and Deimos have been only discovered in 1877 by the American astronomer Asaph Hall. The discovery matched almost exactly the Gulliver’s story. Phobos means “fear” while Deimos means “panic”. These satellites have got attention to many speculation. During one study around the satellites, a UFO have been seen. Many speculated that it was from an advanced civilization living on Mars. In fact many facts suggest that this two satellites are artificial. But many other study show that they look like very old. they doesn’t seem artificial anymore. Maybe in the past.

In fact, the martian civilization have for a long time be in our mind. Many movies and stories talked about it. Maybe it is true and our universal subconscious remember this past. It was maybe our ancestors. A cataclysm would have destroyed this civilization. They escaped on Earth and build a new civilization bringing new form of life on it. It could have been millions years ago. Phobos and Deimos have a density very small and it is not normal for natural satellite. It is why, we could imagine that they were created as space bases with an hollow center. Also, some people say that Phobos and Deimos have been created in the nineteenth century because before Asaph Hall, many observation have been made without seeing the satellite even if the technology was enough powerful. Phobos is the nearest satellite to Mars. It is a lot slower than Deimos. Mars seen from Deimos is thousand time larger and 400 times brighter than the moon seen from the Earth. Imagine, when we will be able to travel in space and see the universe from different point. Mars and its satellite must a good destination.
