Who discovered Haumea?
The dwarf planet Haumea was discovered by Michael E. Brown. Brown was born in Alabama in 1965 and was educated at the University of California, Berkeley and Princeton University.
Haumea was discovered by Michael E. Brown and José Luis Ortiz Moreno in 2005.
Haumea was nicknamed "Santa" because it was discovered shortly after Christmas by Mike Brown.
No. There are others that have been discovered that are smaller and there could be others that have to be discovered yet.
Haumea is one of the newly-discovered Kuiper Belt Objects out beyond the orbit of Neptune. It has a perihelion distance of about 35 AU.
Not too sure if it is a new planet but the dwarf planet Haumea - discovered in 2004 - had the nickname "Santa" before the official naming of Haumea.
Yes. Other than Pluto, there is also Ceres, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris.
Of course they are "Dwarf Planets" like Pluto but: Makemake, Haumea, and Eris.
Haumea is sometimes known by its minor-planet designation, 136108 Haumea.
Yes, Haumea is a dwarf planet. Haumea is a dwarf planet. It is supposedly one third the size of pluto.
Haumea has a mass of approximately 4.006 x 1021Kg

No. Haumea is not classified as a planet. It is a dwarf planet.
Yes, Haumea is a rocky, terrestrial planet.
It was named after Haumea, the Hawaiian goddess of childbirth.
At this time it is believed tha Haumea has no atmosphere.
One day on Haumea is 2 hours
As far as we know, Haumea does not have an atmosphere, so there would be no wind.
As far as we know, there is no atmosphere on Haumea, meaning there is no weather and no storms.
As far as we know right now, Haumea does not have an atmosphere, meaning there are no hurricanes.
Haumea is a dwarf planet due to being an oval shape.
No. Haumea is a dwarf planet and in terms of composition is more similar to a comet.
Haumea takes 283.28 years to orbit the Sun.
Haumea is ellipsoid in shape. In this way it is not unlike a rugby ball or an American football.
It takes Haumea 3.9155 to complete one rotation.
No, Haumea is a terrestrial planetoid. It is estimated to have one-third the mass of Pluto.
Haumea is a rocky, terrestrial dwarf planet.
Haumea weighs (4.006 ± 0.040) x 1021 kg, or about 0.00066 Earths.
Haumea orbits between 34.952 and 51.483 AU from the Sun.
It takes Haumea 284.12 Earth-years to complete its orbit of the sun.
No. It is far too small and too far away to be seen with the naked eye. Even with the most advanced telescopes it wasn't discovered until 2004.
No. No there isn't.
Like all dwarf planets, Haumea is significantly smaller than Earth.
Haumea has a gravitational pull of 0.63m/s2, or between one fifteenth and one sixteenth that of Earth.
As far as we know, Haumea does not have an atmosphere, so the wind speed would effectively be zero.
A day on Haumea is just 3.9155 hours. A year is equal to 284.12 Earth-years.
The surface gravity on Haumea is about 0.63m/s^2, which is between one fifteenth and one sixteenth that of Earth.
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.
From the Sun: Ceres Pluto Haumea Makemake Eris In Size: Eris Pluto Makemake Haumea Ceres
Haumea has a gravitational pull of just 0.63m/s2, which is between one fifteenth and one sixteenth of that of Earth.
The most recent dwarf planet discovered was Makemake, on March 31, 2005. The most recent planet accepted into the category of dwarf planet was Haumea, on September 17, 2008.
no unfortunately it does not have rings
As far as we know, Haumea does not have an atmosphere, though future advances in telescopes or probes may yet provide a definitive answer.
Ceres has no known natural satellites. Haumea has two known moons, Hi'iaka and Namaka.
A day on Haumea is very short compared to here on Earth. Haumea's rotational period is just 3.9155 hours.
Haumea is named after the Hawaiian goddess of childbirth. The names of its two moons, Hi'iaka and Namaka, also have their origins in Hawaiian mythology.
A 100 pound person would weigh 4.4852 pounds on Haumea. Flipping things around, if someone weighed 100 pounds on Haumea, they would weigh 2,229.5455 pounds on Earth.
Pluto, Eris, Ceres, Haumea and Makemake are five dwarf planets in our solar system. There are many dwarf planets some discovered and some undiscovered.
The people who have been the closest to Haumea were the Apollo astronauts in orbit around the moon. At about 250,000 miles further out from the Earth, this distance is insignificant, since Haumea is over fifty times the distance from the Sun than Earth orbits at.
Haumea is named after the Hawaiian goddess of childbirth. Its two known moons, Hi'iaka and Namaka, are also named after characters in Hawaiian mythology.
