Explore Phobos, Outer Space and more!

Deimos, one of the two moons of Mars, is a teeny little guy with an average radius of just 6.2 km.

'Mars From Deimos' 1956. Hardy's description: 'The dumbell-shaped spaceship (designed by Arthur C. Clarke) shown in the previous 'space station' image has arrived, touching down lightly in the low gravity of Mars's little outer moon, Deimos. The polar cap is clearly visible, and at that time it was still considered possible that the dark areas on Mars were caused by vegetation, fed by the melting caps. On the right of the planet is Phobos, the inner moon. #mars
