Space Game: Where in the Solar System is Destination One? (day 4)

Hey Space Bloggers!

Let’s start the week with a recap. Here’s what we know about Destination One so far.

Day 1 (the 1st view) – rocky, craters, ridges, no sign of water or vegetation

Day 2 (the riddle/limerick) – both hot and cold, lost its air, nearly 5 billion years old, it goes’ around’

Day 3 (the Skype message and 2nd view) – fast moving, hot (again), a ‘messenger’ from Earth arrived there on St. Patrick’s Day, it’s tricky to enter into orbit around it

And today’s clue is a word about gravity…

Being in orbit around the sun is like being swung around in a big circle at the end of a rope; the shorter the rope, the faster you swing.

Figured it out, yet?  When you think you know the location of Destination One, click on ‘Leave a Reply’ below and tell us. Please! The suspense is killing me!
