Ganymede Lander/Laplas-P mission[edit]


I've created a new section about naming issues of an upcoming mission about Ganymede. You can answer here. — Foldo (talk) 18:48, 16 February 2017 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Feldo (talkcontribs)

Notice about adminship to participants at this project[edit]

Many participants here create a lot of content, may have to evaluate whether or not a subject is notable, decide if content complies with BLP policy, and much more. Well, these are just some of the skills considered at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship.

So, please consider taking a look at and watchlisting this page:

You could be very helpful in evaluating potential candidates, and even finding out if you would be a suitable RfA candidate.

Many thanks and best wishes,

(2060) 95P/Chiron (1977 UB)[edit]

Does anyone have photos for Chiron? Commons doesn't have that, and neither does our article 2060 Chiron (there's an artist's impression in the infobox)

I seem to recall it was photographed by HST before, but I can't find those.

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Solar System/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Solar System.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Solar System, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Mars Tectonics[edit]

Interesting article, virtually all by one author and parts read like an essay. Doug Weller talk 10:52, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Rename discussion at Geyser (Mars)[edit]

A rename discussion is underway at Geyser (Mars), proposing that both Geyser (Mars) and Gully (Mars) be renamed Martian Geysers and Martian Gullies, respectively. The discussion could benefit from additional eyes. DanHobley (talk) 09:17, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
