Small but packed with great things, the dwarf planet pluto keeps on surprising us. Recently, the New Horizons spacecraft captured an unexpected frozen world on pluto as well as some cloud candidates.
As scientists and astronomers explore the outer space in search for Planet Nine is believed to be about 10x the size of the Earth, a new dwarf planet was discovered instead, and it seems that Pluto will now welcome a new member of its family, as confirmed by the International Astronomical Union.
A new dwarf planet was found lurking in the outermost region of our solar sytem
There could be subsurface oceans underneath Pluto's Icy heart and the oceans may have similar salinity as the Dead Sea.
Astronomers discovered a new weird object with retrogade orbit ans spinning in an opposite direction beyond Neptune.
A mysterious object was discovered orbiting beyond Neptune; its orbit has an odd tilt and it spinning in reverse as compared to any other planets in the solar system.
Scientists found jumbled icy and rocky zones in dwarf planet Ceres’ interior, suggesting that the planet may be warmer inside
NASA released a simulation video that shows the point-of-view of a spacecraft landing on Pluto. The video was created using 100 images captured by the New Horizons spacecraft taken within a span of six weeks during the spacecraft's approach to the dwarf planet during its flyby in 2015.
A new distant dwarf planet was discovered beyond Neptune.
A new dwarf planet has been discovered out in the far reaches of the solar system, past Neptune and Pluto. The discovery has been designated "2015 RR245" by the International Astronomical Union.
Scientists identified permanently shadowed region in dwarf planet Ceres for the first time.
NASA scientists have decided that the Dawn spacecraft will be more useful if it stays on dwarf planet Ceres than a flyby on a mysterious object in the asteroid belt.
The Kuiper Belt is located on the edge of the Solar System populated by four dwarf planets. One of which called Makemake was discovered orbited by an alien dark moon who had long been undetected.
New evidence from a study published in the journal of Geophysical Research Letters supports the case that there could be water underneath the frozen surface of Pluto.
New studies suggest that the plain and icy heart of Pluto called Sputnik Platum beats like a cosmic lava lamp. The reservoir of nitrogen-ice, when warmed up by the internal hear of Pluto melts and rises to the surface which makes the icy part appear beating.
