The new iMoon 2
The new iMoon 2 – now 33% thinner and up to 15% lighter….
The iMoon 2 (pronounced /aɪmoon/, EYE-moon) is the latest in a line of natural satellites designed, developed and marketed by Apple Inc. primarily as a platform for visual observation and occasional visits. Its mean radius falls between Io and Europa. The iMoon runs the same synchronous rotation operating system as the iCharon and iGanymede. Without modification, and with the exception of Earth, it will only orbit planets approved by Apple and distributed via its online store.
Like iGanymede and iCharon the iMoon is controlled by tidal forces –a departure from most previous moons which used a destabilised asteroid orbit-triggered capture method as well as a virtual onscreen heavy bombardment in lieu of a physical impact.
The iMoon uses an LRO data connection allowing browsing on the Internet, loading and streaming of media, and installation of software. Some models also have a 0.167G wireless data connection which can connect to LROC data networks. The device is managed and synced on a personal computer via a very, very long USB cable. The new iMoon has an external magnetic field of the order of 1 to a 100 nanoteslas. It does not currently have a global dipolar magnetic field. Future iMoon upgrades will come with a liquid metal core geodynamo.
