They also aim to monitor the formation progress of the possible moon system near the star and planets.
Nearby, providing another similarly slick but weird counterpoint to the paintings, Charity, an upended 2007 Zaha Hadid Moon System sofa, assumes a peculiarly monumental pose, lending iconoclastic humor to an already appealing Dada-esque atmosphere.
Comment: Jupiter's moon system consists of at least 67
The resulting table, intended primarily for dining-room use, is what Busnelli calls a "strong design statement," one that's on par with B&B's other signature pieces, like the Moon System sofa (2007) by Zaha Hadid or Link table (2008) by Jakob Wagner.
The spacecraft was swinging by the earth- moon system on June 2 and 7.
In unrelated but parallel efforts, the European Space Agency (ESA) has announced that it has successfully established an in-orbit, satellite-to-satellite, laser data link and has validated the communications link between the ESA Huygens probe and the American National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Cassini orbiter that will begin exploration of Saturn and its moon system during the period 2004 to 2008.
The tables show, that within each moon system the fractal dimension [DELTA] (4) is quite constant, but different from the average empiric value [DELTA] = 2/D = 2/1.527 [approximately equal to] 1.31 for planets and planetoids [1].
P4, Nix, and Hydra are so small and so faint, that scientists combined short and long exposures to create this image of Pluto and its entire moon system. The speckled background is camera 'noise' produced during the long exposures.

The dwarf planet's entire moon system is believed to have formed by a collision between Pluto and another planet-sized body early in the history of the solar system.
Below: The gravity of a large moon will cause its host planet wobble around the center of mass of the planet moon system. This wobble causes both the timing and duration vary from one orbit to the next, which make astronomers to detect the moon.
