Random Space Fact

The origin of Mars' moons is controversial. Some scientists believe that they came from the asteroid belt, with Jupiter's gravity long ago nudging them into orbit around Mars. Others believed the moons may have formed as satellites around Mars, created by dust and rock that was drawn together by gravity. Another hypothesis is that Mars may have had an existing moon that may have collided with the red planet and created dust and rubble which drew together to form Phobos and Deimos. (Space > Phobos )
