Talk:Tycho (lunar crater)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Another interesting thing to 'quote' when it comes to this term 'tycho' is the TMA-1 (Tycho Magnetic Anomaly 1), the fictitious magnetic aberration in Arthur C Clarke's Science Fiction '2001: A Space Odyssey'. It is this aberration that causes mankind to discover the existence of an intelligent species that planted the TMA-1 in Moon's Crater (the Tycho itself).

I think it would be worth quoting this here to give one complete circle :)

Can we get a picture of the crater?

I live in the Southern Hemisphere and for us the creator appears in the upper right hand quadrant of the moon. Also, all the compass direction comments in the article are reversed for us. How do we resolve that in an article like this?

Surely there is some sort of standard way to do this? Is north on Earth necessarily north on the Moon? Or is the Earth's southern just disadvantaged in Wikipedia?

Dinosaurs extinction reference[edit]

Shouldn't the sentence "and causing the extinction of the dinosaurs." have a "probably" in it ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:20, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Triva (2001 and Star Trek references)[edit]

(Copied from my talk page) "Please clean up the 2001 reference as there are now two distinct references in the article. Please make it into one, perhaps just a revert? Thanks. WilliamKF 23:42, 1 November 2006 (UTC)"

Whoops, I had completely overlooked the earlier entries, as they were buried in details. I made an edit yesterday to conform to "trivia" pages on a couple of other pages. I think William's changes are for the better. Thanks again. --David Spalding 18:21, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

Source identified[edit]

i found an article that tells of a possible source asteroid for the tycho crater, i added a secion called Origin allong with the link. —Preceding unsigned comment added by BlazeOfGlory15 (talkcontribs) 08:53, 7 September 2007 (UTC)


I deleted the sentence relating to a beautiful girl being named after it. I agree, it's a great name for a beautiful girl, but it's not really fit for an encyclopedia entry. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:54, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

apollo 17[edit]

According to and the pages for apollo 17, it went nowhere near tycho. Perhaps this should say surveyor 7? But without any mention at the far end, it seems to be basically bogus. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:04, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

I had exactly the same question. By googling a little, I found this page [1]. According to the page it was like: impact at Tycho -> ejecta (rays) -> landslide at Apollo 17 landing site. It's a bit surprising to me that the projectiles flew 2000 km... well but it may not be so strange for the world of vacuum & 1/6 g... --Dynamicsoar (talk) 02:19, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

See also[edit]

Shouldn't the content of the "See also" section be in a disambiguation page, rather than part of the Tycho (lunar crater) page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Moutmoutosaure (talkcontribs) 16:39, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
