Thanks for the submissions - we'll add 'Moonchild,' 'Mikrokosmos' and '134340
' to the playlist!
Pluto, minor-planet designation 134340
Pluto, is the largest object in the Kuiper belt, and the tenth-most-massive body observed directly orbiting the Sun.
Provisionally designated S/2012 (134340
) 1, or P5, the latest moon was detected in nine separate sets of images taken by Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 on 26, 27 and 29 June, and 7 and 9 July 2012.
Several weeks after the meeting, the IAU classified Pluto as asteroid 134340
Joining both tracks in the charts are '134340
' and 'Paradise' which landed on numbers 66 and 71, respectively.
Announced July 10th by the IAU's Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams, P5--officially S/2012 (134340
) 1--gleams at magnitude 27, which puts its diameter somewhere between 6 and 15 miles (10 and 25 kilometers), depending on the moonlet's surface reflectivity.
The songs '134340
' and 'Outro: Tear' tackle the theme of letting go like polar opposites.
