I really enjoyed reading all that. As we could say in french " Enorme, c'est du lourd, génial"
Albedo is the fraction of the total light striking a surface that gets reflected from that surface. An object that has a high albedo (near 1) is very bright; an object that has a low albedo (near 0) is dark. The Earth's albedo is about 0.37. The Moon's is about 0.12. Mine is 1 !!
