Dwarf Planets

Parent Category: The Solar System
Dwarf planets are celestial bodies orbiting around the Sun that are not counted as planets because of their small size. Find questions about the different Dwarf Planets here.
Pluto's temperature varies with its distance from the Sun. We thinkthe maximum daytime temperature is about -223 degrees C.
There is no starting point. We don't know where Pluto startedorbiting so we cannot determine the answer to this question.However, we do know that it takes Pluto 248 years to orbit the sun.
Eris is located in the Kuiper belt [See related question] beyond the orbit of Neptune.
it wont it just depends on what the horizon is made of
A black dwarf would be the same size as a white dwarf: between7,000 and 17,000 miles across.
Beyond the orbit of Neptune, there are uncounted numbers of small icy objects such as Pluto, Sedna, Eris, Makemake, and Haumea. They are similar to both planets and comets and are made largely of frozen gases. The term "plutoid" is also used to describe these Kuiper Belt objects (KBOs).
no its a dwarf planet
it would take about six to seven months
Answer . No, but it is possible to hear their effects.
Aidoneus, Aides (meaning, like Hades, the unseen), Pluto (the rich one), Ditis Pater, Dis Pater, Dis(all meaning the rich one), Orcus (killer), Polydectes (the receiver of many), Clymenus (the Illustrious), Eubulus (the giver of good counsel), etc. He is the "one of many names".
Pluto's moon is about the size of Pluto, so they pretty much orbiteach other.
You might find a picture of people fighting against police or thearmy; that often happens during revolutions.
No. "Planet" Biyo is not a planet but an asteroid.
There are other dwarf planets, comets, and Kuiper belt objects
Pluto isn't a planet anymore because of its DISTANCE of the Sun. Astruonaut WERE planning to blow it up.
It thickness or thinness is measured by the molecular weight andthe surface pressure. The average molecular weight is about 28 andthe pressure is 15 lb/sq.in. That can be compared with atmosphereson other planets e.g. Venus, Mars and all the outer planets.
not yet but who knows they might do it someday
no but one is getting there
Comets are mostly composed of rock, dust, water ice and frozen gases such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane, and ammonia
Yes. New Horizons is meant to study dwarf ice plants like Plutoover time.
Ceres never had a son, she only had one daughter named Proserpina.
400 Octillion Joules. (400,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) It's not really a fair question, however. The Death Star, as depicted in the Star Wars movies, is grossly overpowered for its purpose. It would take a tiny fraction of that energy to simply vaporize the surface and wipe out all...
because its the furthest away and therefore has a further distance to cover
The Moon's diameter is 2,159 mi (3,475 km).
No. Pluto is not a Jovian planet as it is made primarily out ofice, not gas. As of 2006 Pluto is no longer considered a planet.
Charon, also known as Pluto I, is the largest of the five knownnatural satellites of the dwarf planet Pluto. It was discovered in1978 at the United States Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C.,using photographic plates taken at the United States NavalObservatory Flagstaff Station. With half the...
\nA moon must orbit a planet, or it isn't a moon, it's a planet.
Cinder blocks come in different sizes and weights, so in order toanswer this question let's assume that the cinder block is a "lightweight" version, which weighs about 28lbs here on Earth. Ceres,which is a dwarf planet (or "planetoid"), has a surface gravity of0.27 m/s^2. Thus, a cinder block would...
:) Slightly more likely there than on its dark sister, Neptune. But the possibility is remote. The most likely spots for life in our solar system are probably Mars and Titan (which is Saturn's largest moon). Short answer: no. Long answer: hell no.
OF COURSE THERE ARE STILL PLANETS! You are living on one.
Yes, it is. The only thing that has changed in regards to Pluto is it'sdesignation: it is now considered to be a dwarf planet .
The International Astronomical Union defined planet on August 24, 2006 and decided that Pluto did not fit the definition.
Nobody knows for sure, but many scientists think Pluto is made of rock and ice. Apparently, a kid in Encino, California made a comic about action-fighting Alpha Pluto and his Multiple Energy Forms. I think the creator is someone called David Yang that goes to Emelita Street School (Elementary).
That's Kepler's third law. He derived it empirically from Tycho's observational data, and it can be derived from Newton's law of universal gravitation.
A normal planet is huge and a dwarf planet is really small.
Mars is the 4th planet
Answer . Neutral gray.
In all likelihood, yes. Most large solar system bodies have beenheavily bombarded by asteroids and there is no reason to believeMakemake is an exception. However, Makemake is so far away that wecannot make out enough detail to see any craters.
Ceres is classified as a dwarf planet [See related question] it is the largest asteroid and only dwarf planet in the asteroid belt [See related question]
Although not known for certain, the inner core of Pluto is thoughtto make up 70% of the dwarf planet. The core is thought to be madeup of rocky material and surrounded by a mantle of ice, in much thesame way that a mantle of magma surrounds the iron core of Earth.
all planets do who asked this
Pluto has been scientifically proven to be pink. scientists say that the color comes from the zinc located inside Pluto.also Pluto is know to be the bigest planet in our solar system.kdhgllsdh i5hjfaj i like apple pie. idsy uest and this theory is most spicifally proven to be true. and notify...
Year is the amount of time it takes the Earth to revolve around the sun. It takes Pluto about 250 years to complete one revolution about the sun.
The gravitational pull between them causes Pluto to come near neptune. Did you know that when Pluto goes to go around the sun, it goes through Neptunes system. (Neptune has rings)
i dont know but i want to cold
Because it's not one and really cannot be a planet!
It was officially named by the Lowell Observatory that discoveredit, but the idea for the name came from Venetia Burney an 11year-old school girl from Oxford. She suggested the name becausePluto is the name of the mythological god of the underworld; at thetime (1930) of its discovery Pluto was one...
Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus & Neptune are the four outer planets the four inner planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars.
Because Charon is not a god it does not have a symbol
Pluto isn't gray. It appears gray in most images because they werenot taken in color. Pictures from the new Horizons space probeshows that it varies between black and tan. The reason for thecolor variation is uncertain.
\nDwarf planets are very small and usually have much more elliptical orbits than normal planets.
That's because Pluto is usually further from the Sun than Neptune is. Incidentally, Pluto is defined as only a dwarf planet now.
\nOne of the first concerns is that it's just so far away. We haven't even been to Mars yet, nor have we even got an unmanned probe to Pluto (yet; there's one on the way). Also, any time an astronaut goes into space, they are bombarded with high energy radiation, that over a long flight to Pluto...
Largely because it is bigger. The radius of Mars is about half again as large as that of Mercury, the mass about twice as great (remember that volume scales as the cube of radius).
Ceres is a stable object. It is not going to blow up.
Ceres is a dwarf planet not an asteroid. It measures 620 miles (1,000 km) in diameter.
Probably not. Pluto is so far from the Sun, and so cold, that almost any atmosphere that it might have would be frozen. .
Mercury and Venus
Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune all have a ring system.
well none of them take 165 years. but the closest would be Neptune that takes 164.79 Earth years to orbit the sun.
There is no planet by the name Eris. Please restate the question.
mercury is a rocky substance. Therefore a terrestrial planet.
Technically, Pluto has been named a dwarf planet and is no longer a planet. The order of the planets orbiting the Sun from the closest to the farthest are as follows: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, (and then Pluto if it was still a planet). So your answer is Neptune.
Impossible to determine. At least old enough to operate a good telescope, because Proxima Centauri isn't visible to the naked eye.
The fact that Pluto has hydrostatic equilibrium (a roughly spherical shape caused by gravitational influence) as attested to via the Hubble images. One could argue that it is a double planet with Charon which also maintains hydrostatic equilibrium and is bigger than the dwarf planet Ceres. This...
The reason that Pluto is a dwarf planet rather than a planet is mainly due to it's size, specifically, the fact that it has not cleared it's orbit of enough matter.
You would still be 9. Due to the Humans current inability to colonize outside our own planet all calculations, like age, are still based on the Earth standard. But, assuming that was not your specific question, it takes approximately 248 Earth years for Pluto to orbit the sun once. So for your...
Eris was named after the Greek goddess of discord and strife.
Zero, nada, you would be dead, the sun is stinking hot, I mean hotter than the tropics.
Basically the same as normal planets - dwarf planets are basically"small planets".
Pluto's diameter is 2,274 km :)
-34 degrees Celsius
Planets can cause the star to have a very slight wobble or shift in normal path. This is picked up by a spectrogram. Some planetary systems actually have dust clouds around the star.
A year is how long it takes Earth to orbit the Sun, and for all practical purposes, you may regard that as 365 and 1/4 days. Other planets take different time periods to orbit the Sun.
The simplistic answer is that, up to now, compared to other planets, Pluto was too small and insignificant to warrant the cost of a space mission. Pluto is so small and insignificant (about 1/5 of the mass of the Moon, or 1/500 of the mass of Earth) that the international science community has...
space probes have crossed Pluto's orbit, but never have visited the planet because Pluto was not in alignment with the flight path of the space probes.
because there might be one we can live on
Please give me Answer. {Jayesh Dobaria}
All of the other planets were named after Roman gods. Venetia Phair came up with the idea because she thought that this planet should follow suit.
Planets and Dwarf Planets are both round, unlike asteroids, which are potato shaped.
10 hours and 39 Minuit's is one saturnian day
No scientist speculated it because scientists know that electric and magnetic attraction is polarised, i.e. some objects attract and others repel. Also magnetism does not have poles, so it is impossible to generate a 'central force' which is necessary for an orbit as we know it. On the other hand...
I would say that its extremely unlikely
