#PPOD: Pluto's approximately 50-km wide moon Nix was imaged by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft on July 14, 2015. The red area is likely a region of tholin deposition and/or formation. Tholins are abiotic complex organic solids possibly produced when ultraviolet light from the faraway Sun breaks down molecules of methane that escape Pluto.

Ganymede from Juno
#Jupiter's #moon Ganymede, the largest in the Solar System, has an icy surface with bright craters and grooved terrain. Its ocean may harbor more water than #Earth's and possibly life. Juno spacecraft's 2021 flyby of Ganymede shortened its Jupiter orbit from 53 to 43 days while studying Jupiter's gravity, magnetic field, and clouds.

Taxonomical alignment with geological complexity is the most useful scientific taxonomy for planets.
That is, all Solar System bodies in #hydrostatic equilibrium should be labelled planets, regardless of what they orbit.
Solar System therefore has 36 planets including 8 primary planets, 9 dwarf planets, and 19 secondary planets we typically refer to as #moons.

How Long Are Days and Years on Other Planets in Our Solar System?
Even #Pluto gets an honourable mention!
Idk who did it, but this TL is loose and fast with the subs and adding a lot of things that aren't said/implied.
I am looking for a planetary scientist, specialized in extraterrestrial #volcanism, willing to comment (briefly) on this preprint about a possible #caldera on #Pluto (someone not involved in the study): https://doi.org/10.48550/arXiv.2310.10904
The comment will appear in the next issue of kīpuka, a quarterly, popular science magazine about #volcanoes.
Boosts appreciated, thanks!

Pluto entered Sagittarius for the first time in 233 years on 17th of January 1995 as Uranus and Neptune hung out in late Capricorn. Later on that year it dipped back to Scorpio to finish up some old business, and just after re-entering Sagittarius, Uranus entered Aquarius in January 1996. Neptune followed suit in January 1998. And that was when the future ...
When I turned on my Chromecast with Google TV this morning, it strangely started playing Pluto.
How do I know?
It was playing bloody ad. That's how I knew. You can bet that I ran from the kitchen to the remote to cut this shit off.
It's the first time I recall it doing shit like this.
I'm now wondering if it was a fluke, or if Google is enshittifying this device now.
Ça y est j'ai terminé #Pluto, et j'ai adoré ! L'histoire sous forme d'enquête policière est vraiment prenante (ça c'est la patte de Naoki Urasawa) et on retrouve les thèmes chers à Osamu Tezuka (pacifisme, écologie, respect de toutes les formes de vie).
Les principaux personnages de la série Astroboy sont présents en version "réaliste" , mention spéciale au professeur Tenma, savant autant génial qu'inquiétant.
Ça faisait longtemps que je n'avais pas vu une aussi bonne série !
Started watching #Pluto on netflix tonite; the most advanced robots around the world, as well as key figures in the struggle for the rights of robots and AI, are being dispatched by a mysterious organization- or entity. Protagonist Gesicht, one of these robots and a world-class detective, must solve these murders as the clock ticks- while struggling with what it really means to be human, or not. Don’t let it being an #anime scare you; it’s got fantastic production quality and really beautiful animation. It is somewhat violent at times, but it doesn’t feel gratuitous or glorified- rather the opposite, really. Based solely on the first episode, I would recommend you catch this one for sure. #review
in an #anime hoarding phase. got current on #SpyxFamily (at least with whats available on Netflix), started #Pluto, enjoying it so far. finally making use of the GBs of storage space on my phone with #nyaatorrents and #flud on my phone (flud really is an excellent torrent client)
any new or old #cyberpunk anime recommendations? :)
So I just finished #Pluto on Netflix, and I have to say it really moved me. There isn't much left under the sun that's new in #scifi but Pluto takes a really nuanced and moving deep dive into the deeply worn subject of machine intelligence or #ai (not the crap we're currently calling AI).
Great art, great sound track, great story. I got lured in by the #cyberpunk tag, and I'm not sure it contained many of the elements I look for in that genre, what do you all think?
been watching the #pluto anime on netflix
its a scifi drama/murder mystery set in the universe of astro boy, and theres a lot going on: ai, politics, war & mental health, revenge, conspiracies
honestly probably the best thing netflix has put out in a long time: the animation looks a bit cheap in places but the story slaps
Today's Cancer ♋️ Moon 🌖 takes us through some crazy alignments. 💫
A grand sextile happens when the planets form two intersecting triangles...
a star of david shape! ✡️
Not only that, but that same Cancer Moon forms a ➡️mystic rectangle⬅️ later in the day, followed by an opposition to Pluto. 🤯
The #oppositions these alignments create can...
Ich gucke derzeit einen Klassiker auf #Pluto aus den 70.ern. Die Serie "Der Kommissar". Gütiger, was wurde da bei Verhören Schnaps und Bier getrunken. Geraucht wird da in jeder neuen Szene. Undenkbar für heutige Verhältnisse.

I'm happy to see another of Urasawa Naoki's work is animated.
I'm just watching the first episode on Netflix. There are so many lines I liked already.
"I'm too outdated to understand the subtle joy of drinking tea"
Ça y est l'animé #Pluto est sorti sur #Netflix ! En 8 épisodes d'une heure, c'est une adaptation du manga éponyme de Naoki Urasawa, lui-même inspiré de l'histoire d'Astro Boy "Le robot le plus fort du monde" d'Osamu Tezuka.
J'ai regardé le premier épisode et ça démarre vraiment très bien, on retrouve le style graphique particulier de l'auteur (presque comme de la BD européenne) et la réalisation est superbe. L'histoire devrait être très fidèle au manga, j'ai hâte de voir la suite !
Duncan: "How many robots did you destroy?"
nan-tai no robotto o hakai shita?
This time, instead of 何人 (nan-nin) = how many people, Duncan uses 何体 (nan-tai) = how many bodies.
I would have expected 何台 (nan-dai, how many machines), but I guess dead robots are bodies too 🙂
New Horizons was the first spacecraft to explore dwarf planet Pluto up close, arriving in 2015 after a 9 year journey. You might recall images which revealed that the surface of Pluto resembled a large heart. For #spacetober prompt New Horizons I am sharing my tiny linocut of Pluto. (It’s about the size of a Canadian twonie coin).

Topic 8: The solar system
How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming, by Mike Brown
If you are in my generation, Pluto losing its spot as a planet is likely a sore topic for you. I was therefore delighted to find this book, and learn more about just what the heck happened and why. By the end of the book I was not only stunned by the amount of work that went into the process, but I also learned to understand why Pluto is not a planet anymore.

I see a lot of new #introduction posts because of the influx of users. So, why not.
#Introduction: I’m Sevro. I love anime/manga and jumped ship because I had enough of the toxic cesspool that is Twitter. I (as of this post) have 600 volumes of #manga and counting, and my AniList.co claims over 57 days of #anime watched. I’ve linked it in my profile if you want to be mutuals there too.
I love #Haikyu, #Pluto, #BlackClover, #FireForce and of course things like #OnePiece and #DragonBall. I’ve also discovered an intense love of #reZERO, #EDENSZERO and #MushokuTenseiJoblessReincarnation

The journey to #Pluto, the farthest world ever explored - Alan Stern
As of 1989, mankind had successfully sent craft to every known #planet in the solar system except one: Pluto. Located in an mysterious region called the #KuiperBelt, Pluto is a scientific goldmine, and could hold clues to the formation of our solar system. Alan Stern explains how #NASA's #NewHorizons mission is going to allow us to see Pluto for the first time.
#Introduction: I’m Sevro… I don’t get Mastodon. But I love anime/manga and have had enough of the toxic cesspool that is Twitter (and honestly this fandom as a general concept, it seems, but I digress). I have almost 600 volumes of manga and counting, and my AniList.co claims almost 55 days of anime watched.
The Singularity Is Here: Pluto in Aquarius Reflections On Changing Artistic Directions

Happy #plutoday! The former planet was discovered #OTD by astronomer Clyde Tombaugh in 1930. It lost its planetary status in 2006. A while back, I reviewed the kerfuffle over #Pluto -- a debate that never seems to go away -- for NBC News: https://www.nbcnews.com/mach/science/pluto-planet-or-dwarf-planet-nasa-chief-picks-sides-emotional-ncna1047806 #astronomy @nbcnews
These all „TNOs“ or „Trans-Neptunian Objects“ but that's quite the mouthful, isn't it?
Anyway, look at them go!

Recently I’ve been experimenting with some mini space scenes using only practical FX (obviously having to digitally delete stand holding spaceship). Here’s the Razorcrest flying through space using just a piece of glitter paper for stars & a printed out backlit planet.

Last new item today: Lots of Pluto/Charon earrings and more necklaces! The necklaces have Pluto/Charon to correct scale *and distance* with each other.
I try to use sales to guide how should focus my precious last two weeks of making time before 2023. I just sold two of my last three Pluto/Charon items, so I’m making a few pairs of earrings now…
#EmilysSpaceCraft #Pluto #Charon #space #handmade
Photo: My workspace features boxes of parts including one labeled “14kt” and four pairs of earrings with Pluto and Charon as African opal and labradorite beads, made with sterling silver or gold chain.
