Earth and Moon with dwarf planets

Earth and Moon with dwarf planets. Scaled computer artwork of (from left) Earth, the Moon, Pluto and Ceres. The latter are two of the solar system's dwarf planets. Pluto, which used to be a planet, was demoted in August 2006 to the status of dwarf planet, reducing the solar system's number of planets to eight. The definition of a dwarf planet is an object large enough to be spherical due to gravity, and with an independent orbit. A true planet, such as the Earth, has to dominate its orbit around the Sun. Pluto fails because it is one of many Kuiper Belt objects in the outer solar system. Ceres fails because it is one of many objects in the asteroid belt. The Moon fails because it is a satellite of the Earth

Planets internal structures

Planets internal structures, and Pluto, computer artwork. Mercury, Mars and Venus consist of a large iron core (spherical), surrounded by a thick silicate mantle (yellow) covered in a surface crust. Earth consists of an inner core of solid iron and nickel (yellow) and a molten outer core (orange), surrounded by a mantle of highly viscous liquid (brown) covered by a surface crust. Jupiter and Saturn consist of a core of rock (spherical) surrounded by ice (mat grey). This is surrounded by a layer of liquid metallic hydrogen (grey) and liquid normal hydrogen (blue). Uranus and Neptune have a core of rock (spherical) surrounded by ice and liquid hydrogen (blue). Pluto has a dense rocky core (grey) surrounded by ice (black)


Eris and Dysnomia Featured Pluto Print

Eris and Dysnomia

Eris and Dysnomia. Artwork of the dwarf planet Eris, seen from its moon Dysnomia (lower right). Eris was formerly called 2003 UB313, and was nicknamed Xena by its discoverers, and its moon was nicknamed Gabrielle. Eris is thought to be around 3000 kilometres across, which is slightly larger than Pluto. It takes 560 years to orbit the Sun. Eris is the largest known member of the Kuiper Belt of rocky, icy bodies, including Pluto, that orbit the Sun beyond Neptune. The discovery was made from observations made in 2003 at the Palomar Observatory, USA, by Mike Brown, Chad Trujillo and David Rabinowitz, and announced in July 2005. Dysnomia was observed in September 2005
