Pluto's Crazy Moons

A video showing the "pandemonium" of Pluto's miniature system

 

The latest pictures using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the New Horizons probe confirm that there are five moons circling in eccentric--even crazy--orbits around the dwarf planet Pluto. Small in size, Pluto has shattered all the gravitational theories put in place by Einstein in the 1950s.

Pluto's miniature solar system is not subject to gravitational forces, it's like a bag of buzz-saws twirling through space. Scientists can't believe the data.

"The moons form a series of neatly nested orbits, a bit like Russian dolls," said team leader Mark Showalter of the SETI Institute in Mountain View, Calif. "The way I would describe this system is not just chaos, but pandemonium," he said about the the New Horizons mission (Nov. 9) during a news conference at the meeting of the Division for Planetary Sciences of the American Astronomical Society. "We honestly have not seen anything like this before, and we still don't know what to make of it."

The Pluto team is intrigued that such a small planet can have such a complex collection of satellites. The new discovery provides additional clues for unraveling how the Pluto system formed and evolved, and how it captured its satellites. The favored theory is that all the moons are relics of a collision between Pluto and another large Kuiper belt object billions of years ago. Electric theory has a different scenario.

"The discovery of so many small moons indirectly tells us that there must be lots of small particles lurking unseen in the Pluto system," said Harold Weaver of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Md.

"The inventory of the Pluto system we're taking now with Hubble will help the New Horizons team design a safer trajectory for the spacecraft," added Alan Stern of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colo., the mission's principal investigator.

Pluto's largest moon, Charon, was discovered in 1978 in observations made at the United States Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C. Hubble observations in 2006 uncovered two additional small moons, Nix and Hydra. In 2011 another moon, P4, was found in Hubble data.

Provisionally designated S/2012 (134340) 1, the latest moon was detected in nine separate sets of images taken by Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 on June 26, 27, and 29, 2012 and July 7 and 9, 2012.

In the years following the New Horizons Pluto flyby, astronomers plan to use the infrared vision of Hubble's planned successor, NASA's James Webb Space Telescope, for follow-up observations. The Webb telescope will be able to measure the surface chemistry of Pluto, its moons, and many other bodies that lie in the distant Kuiper Belt along with Pluto.

The Pluto team members are M. Showalter (SETI Institute), H.A. Weaver (Applied Physics Laboratory, Johns Hopkins University), and S.A. Stern, A.J. Steffl, and M.W. Buie (Southwest Research Institute).

PROOF OF THE 13 SIGNS

Ophiuchus (oh-few-kuss)

map from Capricorn-Prometheus

Can you find Ophiuchus center stage, vaulting over the ecliptic?

You can't miss her tail on the Zodiacal plane, like a snake sunning itself on the road. She's on her way to meet Hercules, her male equivalent. Ophiuchus is the female power that was suppressed by astrologers in 100 ACE and she and her coven have been the subject of the largest and longest genocide in history. The war on strong women has never let up. Read on to see how this heroic and erotic female has been supplanted with a patriarchy in astrology since the Roman Empire.

What is your true sign?

Don't be surprised that your birthday no longer falls in the sign you've grown up with. Astrologers gave you the wrong sign, at least the wrong degree. 80 percent of people think they're the wrong sign. Look at the skies yourself, and you'll see the problem. The Sun, Moon and the planets are not where astrologers say, not even close! Mainstream "tropical" astrology is wildly inaccurate and the laughing stock of science and astronomy. Only a 13-sign natal chart can reveal your true sign.[Click to download the free planetarium app Stellarium and see for yourself]

Proof of the veracity of 13 signs

THE PROOF

Most Western astrologers use an obsolete, 1800-year-old system that ignores the Earth's precession of the equinoxes and is off by almost 30 degrees. This is the fatal blow to tropical astrology. Science and the rest of the world abandoned the tropical view of the universe 600 years ago. Tropical astrology gets the signs wrong. They are a sign ahead of what is true. If you want the truth, you have to consult 13-sign astrology, the same view of space that NASA and astronomers routinely use to ascertain the correct planetary and sign positions. You want proof? Click to Telescope, or get one yourself and check the night sky!

Science and Astrology

How important is accuracy? Astrology, like astronomy, is based on degree, and only works with the correct degree. Astrologers must have an astronomically accurate map to interpret a horoscope correctly. How can tropical astrologers use bogus numbers in their horoscopes? It's pure hubris and subterfuge.

Only the correct chart, showing the true signs of the planets and luminaries, can help us interpret them in any meaningful way. The system you use to apply the ancient traditional symbols must correlate to the real sky, or what's the point? The astrological view must conform to the actual astronomy for the astrology to work. Astrology was designed thousands of years ago as the greatest sociological study ever attempted! Why are we adding bad data to the pool?
