Nasa Confirms 10th Planet In Solar System

Sat Jul 30, 2005 2:59 pm

It's been speculated over for years (some would argue even decades), but today, it is now considered official that there is indeed another planet orbiting the star Sol, bringing our known-planetary count to a nice and round total of ten.



The planet is nearly 9 Billion miles from the sun... making it three times further than the combined distance between all of the other planets.

No name has yet been made official, though in keeping with tradition, it's likely going to be named after a member of the Roman pantheon. Good stuff!  bigthumbsup

Any ideas what we should name it?

I'd go for something like Minerva, the Goddess of Wisdom, or Vulcan, the God of volcanos and the underworld (and home planet of Mr. Spock)

It's a shame NASA can't get it's collective crap together and explore these other planets . . . we should have been landing manned missions on Mars a decade ago. . . instead we're still plodding along with an antiquated Space Transportation System the never worked as advertised . . .

The discovery and confirmation of a 10th planet . . . that is big news.

It's about time we explored deeper into our solar system. Who knows what wonders await . . .

Already taken.

As the virgin goddess Minerva (Athena) was the primary affection of Mars' (Ares) lust... the principle moon of his planet already bears her name.

Amusingly off topic, but the primary moon of Jupiter (Zeus) is named after the king of the gods' gay lover, whom modern mythology tends to conveniently omit

Back when I was in 5th grade they announced on the radio i believe that NASA had discovered "evidence" of a 10th planet in the solar system...and i believe at the time they were calling it "X10".


For years I've told my friends that the solar system actually had 10 planets and no one has really taken me seriously despite the fact that this went out over the radio sometime around 1996. Now I have more to show. Big grin Thanks NASA!

This really is fascinating stuff.

Alright, so where does this put Sedna, which was discovered in March 2004?

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/3511678.stm

It was said that it may be the 10th planet, but for the time being were simply calling it a "planetoid." It's similar in size to Pluto.

I haven't heard anything about it in a while...

IF it would be named after the god of volcanoes, it would have its name given in Latin just like all other planets, thus making it VULCANUS iso Vulcan!

Anyway, I hope they can come up with something more applicable:
They have always looked at the stories surrounding the mythological names to name a planet/moon. For instance: the last planet before leaving our solar system was named after Pluto, the God of the underworld, because according to the Roman mythology the underworld was situated right beyond the borders of the world as then known...

Incorrect!

Vulcan is a 100% English noun, just like 'Concord' is an English noun BTW, derived from the Latin 'Condordia'.

If you don't take my word for it, check ANY Latin dictionary and you will see that the God is called VULCANUS and not Vulcan... It is also SATURNUS and URANUS and not Saturn or Urane, isn't it?


His Greek identity is Hephaestus

Incorrect once again!

Now check an ancient Greek dictionary and you'll see it should be Hephaestos. Haephastus does not exist, because contrary to living persons, if you want to Romanise the name of a Greek God, you have to replace his name by the Latin equivalent.

Ah . . . I think not!
The two moons of Mars are Phobos & Deimos. Phobos (fear) and Deimos (panic) were named after the horses that pulled the chariot of the Greek war god Ares, the counterpart to the Roman war god Mars. http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/facts/moons.html

No sign of Minerva!

There may have been a planet Vulcan already. I remember reading once that there were some photographs taken early in the 20th century, of what appeared to be a planet orbiting very near the sun - inside the orbit of Mercury. It was called Vulcan by some.

I've spent a little time trying to google it, but keep coming up with Commander Cody. Smile

Anyone else ever heard of this?

Just look at what is going on now with the shuttle. They spent 2 years supposebly "fixing" the problem and spent tons of money (billions I believe) and it turns out, the problem WASN'T fixed. The same thing happened again. There are much better ways that all this money being put in to the space program could be spent. Instead, we are literally throwing away billions and billions of dollars on a total failure. Focus on the problems going on here, on EARTH, and when all that is resolved....start looking into outerspace. Doesn't help much when life on earth is less than perfect yet we found another planet....just makes no sense. Let's invest all this money in research for drugs to cure diseases which actually does affect us now or later on down the future.

You critics of the space program - do you know how much the US has spent in space to date? From the beginning of the Mercury program right up until this morning?

ready?

Not one cent.

It was spent here on earth. Any scientific gains aside, it created jobs which paid taxes, it produced contracts which created jobs which paid taxes, it called for new materials and technologies which created jobs which paid taxes. Contractors had to build new buildings which gave employment to concrete contractors, steel fabricators, plumbers, electricians, laborers, truck drivers and equipment operators. These jobs paid taxes. Subcontractors chartered airplanes to fly from one plant to another. I got a job doing this flying and I paid taxes. That enabled me to buy groceries which helped pay the wages of grocery clerks and more truck drivers and farmers and on and on.

Government (or quasi-governmental) jobs have been the mainstay of national economies for as long as man has used something like money as a means of exchange. The pyramids of Egypt were one such project. The cathedrals of Europe were public projects. Now honestly, what did mankind get out of the pyramids or the cathedrals of Europe.

We get the same thing from them that we get from the exploration of space.

We get nourishment for our sense of wonder.

Without that sense of wonder we are just animals and there is not really much point in curing our diseases or solving our self-inflicted social problems.

>> EmiratesA345 Reply 14 >> Waste of tax payer money.

NASA does everything from manned spaceflight, to unmanned exploration, to laboratory science on a budget of $16 billion dollars a year. NASA cost each taxpaying adult less than a medium pizza. Hard to choose between an organization that has inspired thousands of young people and led to countless scientific breakthroughs and a peperoni?

>> CORULEZ05 >> Just look at what is going on now with the shuttle. They spent 2 years supposebly "fixing" the problem and spent tons of money (billions I believe) and it turns out, the problem WASN'T fixed

Actually, foam impacts to Discovery -114 were reduced from an average of 125 dints to 25 detectable dints. The foam strip that was lost during launch is a huge anamoly in the program, because foam has never been lost at that stage of flight before. Foam is typically lost a Max-Q, when the Shuttle is passing through the most aerodynamic stress in the relativly thick lower atmosphere. The strip lost on Tuesday was shed at a point when the vehicle was under relativly little aerodynamic loads.

It is a significant problem, yes, but to say NASA has made zero progress is false.

Quoting Sabenapilot (Reply 18):
Now check an ancient Greek dictionary and you'll see it should be Hephaestos. Haephastus does not exist

...so according to you:
  • Athena "does not exist" due to the ancient designation being Athene
  • The Cyclopes do not exist due to the ancient designation being Kyklopes
  • etc?
  • Faire du ciel le plus bel endroit de la terre c'est impossible sans Concorde!

    Since BFE is likely not to be approved I'm all for Vulcan...


    that is, after all, the logical choice.

    We get the same thing from them that we get from the exploration of space.

    We get nourishment for our sense of wonder.

    Without that sense of wonder we are just animals and there is not really much point in curing our diseases or solving our self-inflicted social problems.

    You also get a future, as this planet won't last forever. Sooner or later we as a species have to move on or die.

    Exactly. Our critics of the space program don't get that exploring space and colonizing the other planets will mean the survival of the Human species.
