    Scientists: Most distant object in solar system found


    Tuesday, March 16, 2004 Posted: 0057 GMT (0857 HKT)

    (CNN) -- Scientists may have discovered the solar system's most distant object, more than three times farther away from Earth than Pluto.


    In this artist's visualization, the planet-like object dubbed "Sedna" is so far away that the sun appears as only a bright star.


    "The sun appears so small from that distance that you could completely block it out with the head of a pin," said Dr. Mike Brown of the California Institute of Technology, who helped in the discovery.

    The object -- about 8 billion miles (12.8 billion kilometers) from Earth -- has been given the provisional name of Sedna, after the Inuit goddess who created sea creatures of the Arctic.

    Brown and his team of astronomers, using Caltech's Palomar Observatory, found Sedna in November as part of an ongoing three-year outer solar system project. Days later, the high power Spitzer Space Telescope focused on the object.

    Initial details indicated Sedna to be made of ice and rock, with temperatures never rising above -400 degrees Fahrenheit (-240 degrees Celsius), according to researchers.

    Sedna is likely the largest object to be found circling the sun since the discovery of Pluto in 1930. It is still smaller than the ninth planet, though, with a diameter of more than 1,000 miles (1,700 kilometers).

    The finding has sparked debate over what constitutes a planet.

    Many astronomers say Pluto, with a diameter of just under 1,500 miles (2,300 kilometers), is too small to be a termed a planet and is just one of many minor objects in the outer reaches of the solar system.

    But those who argue Pluto is a planet are likely to push the assertion for Sedna to become the 10th planet in the solar system.
    "slavic" languages are absolutely arteficial (Read "slawenlegende"). The "glagolica", invented by a bunch of monks, is nothing but an ancient esperanto, creating new words, definitions and alphabet out of regional slangs.

    The craddle of European Civilization comes from the North. All blond people originate from the north. So if you see a blond-blue eyed Slovene, Russian, Czech, Polak ect., you can be 100% sure that his ancient ancestors originated from "Germanics" (Germanic = Nordic).
    "slovenja" was the settelment of the Langobards = Germanics/Teutons. "Poland" of the Goths and East-Vandals ect. ect. What do "slavs" tell us about their origin?
    Some silly story that they originate from some swamps in the east and popped out of no where into history.

    So you see my dear "Gorostan" [=Triglav], you are in reality a "Germanic" indoctrinated with panslav propaganda and historic fantasy stories. ~Dr. Brandt, former TNP and Skadi member

    Is Sedna's diameter greater than Mercury? Also, how does the orbit of Sedna compare to the other planets? If it is larger than Mercury (the smallest planet) and corresponds to the orbits of other planets, then, perhaps, it is a true planet. Comets, for instance, orbit our sun but have orbits which are in no way comparable to those of the planets. Asteroids also orbit our sun but are mostly found between Mars and Jupiter and don't have an ice componet as Sedna is said to have. In short, just because it is an orbiting body doen't necessarily mean it should be called a planet. But this is great news nomatter what is decided!!!
