Dwarf Planet Haumea

Parent Category: Dwarf Planets
Tucked away in the Kuiper Belt, Haumea is a dwarf planet named after the Hawaiian goddess of childbirth. It was discovered in 2004 and recognized as a dwarf planet in 2008.
Haumea is a Kuiper Belt plutoid which are a class of dwarf planets similar to Pluto. It has a long elliptical orbit which is inclined relative to Earth's orbit. It is on average much further from the sun than even Pluto is though for part of it's orbit it passes inside Pluto's orbit.
It is a little smaller than Pluto, with an estimated radius ofabout 718 km. About 722 Haumeas could fit inside Earth.
In time 285 years . In distance 1.67 billion kilometers
It's orbit ranges between 34.7 and 51.5 Astronomical Units from the sun, with an average distance of 43.1 AUs.
It has very little gravity
It takes Haumea 284.12 Earth-years to complete its orbit of thesun.
As far as we know, yes it is.
No. No there isn't.
The surface of Haumea is chiefly crystalline water ice. Recentmodels suggest that 66-80% of its surface is covered in it, withthe rest being rocky.
It was named after Haumea, the Hawaiian goddess of childbirth.
Waiting for the perfect launch windows, it would still take wellover 10 years for a small probe to get to Haumea. A manned shipwould take even longer.
Haumea appears very bright, since 65-80% of its surface is coveredin crystalline water ice. The rest is probably rocky. A large darkred area was seen in September 2009, possibly a large crater orother impact feature. In shape, it is ellipsoidal, resembling arugby ball or an American football.
Haumea is named after the Hawaiian goddess of childbirth. Its twoknown moons, Hi'iaka and Namaka, are also named after characters inHawaiian mythology.
The people who have been the closest to Haumea were the Apolloastronauts in orbit around the moon. At about 250,000 miles furtherout from the Earth, this distance is insignificant, since Haumea isover fifty times the distance from the Sun than Earth orbits at.
As we don't fully know what its resources are, we cannot put aprice on it in that way. As a relic of the early Solar System, itcould be considered priceless.
A day on Haumea is very short compared to here on Earth. Haumea'srotational period is just 3.9155 hours.
No. There are others that have been discovered that are smaller and there could be others that have to be discovered yet.
there are many problems in our life
One day on Haumea is 2 hours
As far as I know, no dwarf planet has rings. The only planets (in our Solar System) known to have rings are the four giant planets - Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
Haumea has a gravitational pull of just 0.63m/s 2 , whichis between one fifteenth and one sixteenth of that of Earth.
Haumea is ellipsoid in shape. In this way it is not unlike a rugbyball or an American football.
Haumea is named after the Hawaiian goddess of childbirth. The namesof its two moons, Hi'iaka and Namaka, also have their origins inHawaiian mythology.
A 100 pound man on earth is 10.20401kg. The gravitational acceleration on Haumea is .44m/s^2 so that person would weigh 4.4897956 pounds on Haumea.
I'm not sure, but there is oxygen on most planets, most not having enough for earth organisms to survive.
rock and gas because...
Of note, first, Haumea is a dwarf planet, not a planet. Althoughvery little is known about its surface, it is highly unlikely thatit has any volcanoes.
No. Haumea is not classified as a planet. It is a dwarf planet.
No. Haumea is a dwarf planet and in terms of composition is moresimilar to a comet.
Haumea is a rocky, terrestrial dwarf planet.
One complete rotation takes 3.9155 hours.
In terms of mass, Earth is about 1400 times as massive as Haumea.In terms of volume, Earth is about 722.14 times bigger.
As far as we can tell, 65-80% of the surface is covered incrystalline water ice. The rest is likely rocky.
The equatorial surface gravity on the Plutoid dwarf Haumea is estimated at 0.44 m / s 2 . That's 4.49% of Earth's. If you weigh 200 pounds on Earth and somehow scored a ride to Haumea, you'd weigh just about 9 pounds there.
Haumea makes a complete rotation in just 3.9155 hours, making itsday very short compared to Earth's.
Since one year on Haumea equals 284.12 Earth-years, any humanliving there would be less than a year old. Even the longest-livedhumans would be less than a half year old.
medium size not so big but not so small
A day on Haumea is just 3.9155 hours. A year is equal to 284.12Earth-years.
Haumea is sometimes known by its minor-planet designation, 136108Haumea.
As far as we know, Haumea does not have an atmosphere, so therewould be no wind.
As far as we know, Haumea does not have an atmosphere, so the windspeed would effectively be zero.
No. It is a dwarf planet, so it is three dimensional.
Haumea's rotational period is 3.9155 hours.
As far as we know, there is no atmosphere on Haumea, meaning thereis no weather and no storms.
Haumea orbits between 34.952 and 51.483 AU from the Sun.
Haumea weighs (4.006 ± 0.040) x 10 21 kg, or about0.00066 Earths.
Like all dwarf planets, Haumea is significantly smaller than Earth.
So far, no probes have explored Haumea. If we launched one now, itwould take well over ten years to get there.
Haumea, the dwarf planet, unlike the other 8 planets that we're used to, is nowhere near spherical. So it has many different circumferences, depending on where and how you take the 'cross-section'. The on-line reference that I found describes Haumea's shape as something like a large potato,...
It is a very fast-spinning object. Observations suggest arotational period of less than four hours !
No, they are two different "dwarf Planets".
According to windows2universe.org , the surface gravity ofthe dwarf planet Haumea is 0.44 meters/second squared. (This iscompared to Earth's gravity of 9.807 m/s squared).
As far as we know, Haumea does not have an atmosphere, thoughfuture advances in telescopes or probes may yet provide adefinitive answer.
No. It is far too small and too far away to be seen with the nakedeye. Even with the most advanced telescopes it wasn't discovereduntil 2004.
It takes Haumea 3.9155 to complete one rotation.
The surface gravity on Haumea is about 0.63m/s^2, which is betweenone fifteenth and one sixteenth that of Earth.
We do not know for certain at this time, but it is likely, since aperfectly smooth terrestrial planet is a near impossibility.
Yes, Haumea is a rocky, terrestrial planet.
Haumea is named after the Hawaiian goddess of childbirth. The namesof its two known moons, Hi'iaka and Namaka, also have their originsin the Hawaiian pantheon.
It has a much weaker gravitational pull than Earth. Earth's pull isabout 9.81 m/s^2 at sea level, while Haumea's is about 0.63m/s^2,or roughly one fifteenth of that on Earth.
In terms of mass, it is about one-third that of Pluto. Its radiusis only about 20 km less than that of Pluto, making them verysimilar in size, though Haumea is very different in shape. Pluto ismuch more spherical, while Haumea is more oblong.
A 100 pound person would weigh 4.4852 pounds on Haumea. Flippingthings around, if someone weighed 100 pounds on Haumea, they wouldweigh 2,229.5455 pounds on Earth.
So far, no. It would take a small, fast probe over ten years to getthere, and even longer for a manned vessel. It is possible a probemission will happen someday.
Haumea's orbit is oval shaped, taking it from 34.72 AU out to 51.54 AU from the sun. Currently it's about 50 AU from the sun.
Home gained its dwarf planet title on September 17, 2008.
The force depends on distance from the centre of gravity. If youare twice as far the gravity is one quarter as strong.
There is a lot of water on Haumea, though due to its coldtemperatures, all of it (at least on the surface) is frozen. We donot know enough about its surface to definitively say if it hasvolcanoes, though other pieces of evidence suggest it might.
Haumea has a gravitational pull of 0.63m/s 2 , or betweenone fifteenth and one sixteenth that of Earth.
Haumea is a dwarf planet due to being an oval shape.
As far as we know right now, Haumea does not have an atmosphere,meaning there are no hurricanes.
A day on Haumea is very short, since its rotational period is just3.9155 hours. It takes 284.12 Earth-years (103774 Earth-days) forit to completely orbit the Sun, which means there are 636,081.216Haumean days in one Haumean year.
A small, fast probe would take over 10 years to get there in thebest conditions. A manned ship would take much longer.
With our current spacecraft technology, getting a small probe outto the Kuiper Belt to visit a dwarf planet such as Haumea wouldtake at least ten years. As technology improves spacecraft will getfaster and more efficient, decreasing travel time, but until thenit would take quite a long time.
the diameter of Haumea no one really knows put they estimated it would be 350 km or 217.48 miles. Bold= done by user 2
Yes, Haumea is a dwarf planet. Haumea is a dwarf planet. It is supposedly one third the size of pluto.
Hi`iaka and Namaka, two of the daughters of Haumea
Haumea was nicknamed "Santa" because it was discovered shortlyafter Christmas by Mike Brown.
no unfortunately it does not have rings
It has 2 moons, Hi'aka and Namaka 4
Those are two different questions, look in the "Related Questions" section below.
The temperature is less than 5K c, or -402 degrees Fahrenheit The dwarf planet Haumea has an average of -241 degrees Celsius, although if you are looking for the highest and lowest temperatures, I have been searching for more than two hours because I also need the answer for the sixth grade project,...
The dwarf planet Haumea was discovered by Michael E. Brown. Brownwas born in Alabama in 1965 and was educated at the University ofCalifornia, Berkeley and Princeton University.
Haumea has a mass of approximately 4.006 x 10 21 Kg
Haumea was discovered by Michael E. Brown and José Luis Ortiz Moreno in 2005.
gray with red spot. It is blue There are large areas of red on its mainly white surface, though ther colours have been noted, possibly indictaing that the planets is high in minerals and ores. it is a orange colour due toits lack of methane
It varies from about 5.2 million km to 7.7 million km. It was at aphelion in 1992 and has since been getting closer, though since its orbital period is about 280 years it's still pretty close to the maximum distance.
Haumea takes about 283 Earth years to orbit the sun, or 103,468earth days.
At this time it is believed tha Haumea has no atmosphere.
