revised Why can we sometimes see the moon during the day?
Fixed a broken link to the NatGeo article, and capitalized proper names and added one more link Wiki for inverse-square law so I reached minimum change required for the edit.

comment How many new galaxies enter the observable universe each day/year/decade?
You probably mean how many galaxies? Still, the observable universe horizon isn't limited by the age of the Universe, but its inflation. Number of observable galaxies is actually getting smaller, not larger. And the rate of change would not be linear with time either.

comment How many planets do on average different star types support?
I'm not sure your question makes much sense. For one, you're mixing several stellar classifications (e.g. by mass, by spectral type, by stellar dynamics, by their evolutionary stage,...) in your selection. And I don't recognize some, is "Super Red" supposed to be a red giant? And how is "Protostar" a star? The rest will also be difficult to answer with statistics (min, max, average), since we're barely scratching the surface, so to speak, with exoplanetary census. BTW minimum will always be 0. ;)

comment Does the Moon Have Enough Water for Robert Zubrin's Mars settlement Plan To Work?
@LocalFluff OK, no need to convince me of an alternative possible answer. I wrote mine based on information that I had and what seemed to make the most sense to me. You seem to have different information and ideas about feasibility, so please write another answer. The more, the merrier. I'm not married to what option I suggested here. ;)
