Just some of the larger ones (Titan is far bigger than all other Saturn moons combined):

At the end of that is Flemings rules. Remembering which hand refers to generators or motors can be remembered by this car badge.

To this day I can't get Flemings LH or RH rules. All I know is that I have a piece of plastic 12" long that I use as a rule :-)

I always go LH as I'm RH as a rule but my plastic ruler is slightly longer at 305mm. :-D

Cheers.

The LH rule is for Motors and the RH rule is for Generators.

A friend who knew I liked science sent me this:

http://www.sciencerecorder.com/news/moon-is-100-million-years-younger-than-previous-estimates/

Moon is 100 million years younger than previously thought

The moon is much younger than previously thought.

The universe wastes nothing, it's simply transferred.
