John Moehl introduces his short story collection, Phobos & Deimos: Two Moons, Two Worlds, by stating that the moons of Mars are a metaphor for his world that has been “ pulled by the forces of two different moons ≈ two worlds.” Moehl’s worlds exist in . Phobos is the larger and nearest of Mars’ two natural satellites, the other being Deimos. Both moons were discovered a few days apart in by American astronomer Asaph Hall from the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington DC, who subsequently named them after the offspring of the deities Aphrodite (Venus) and Ares (Mars). Do you like extreme observing challenges? If you own a quality telescope of cm (inch) aperture or larger, have excellent seeing and sky transparency, then you might just glimpse Phobos and Deimos, the diminutive moons of Mars around the time that the Red Planet is . Condemned to work on a Texas ranch alongside Phobos, Deimos, and Cupid, Ellie tries everything within her power to win over the hearts poisoned against her, to no avail. Frustrated and jealous of the rancher's daughter, Ellie's love turns to hate until a plot is revealed by Artemis.

Memorable themes that sigh as if out of breath at their terminus make “Thanatophobia” an early highlight: sticky, technical, and well-explored as a song. Deimos / ˈ d aɪ m ə s / (systematic designation: Mars II) is the smaller and outermost of the two natural satellites of Mars, the other being has a mean radius of km ( mi) and takes hours to orbit Mars. Deimos is 23, km (14, mi) from Mars, much further than Mars's other moon, Phobos. It is named after Deimos, the Ancient Greek god and personification of dread.
Deimos was destroyed by UN forces during the Earth-Mars conflict following the destruction of the Canterbury. In the book, this occurs soon after the Rocinante crew escapes infection on Eros but before the Rocinante returns to Tycho Station and well before Eros moves. Table 1.

What’s the big deal about little Phobos and tinier Deimos? By Robin George Andrews J Mars is the darling of many planetary scientists, who continue to visit it through increasingly.
