New pseudo-planet “Quaoar” found, is Pluto’s status in trouble?

October 7, 2002

A new object was found in the fringes of the solar system which brings into question whether Pluto is even a planet and not just another object in the Kuiper belt. The object named Quaoar is 800 miles in diameter and about four billon miles from earth. Pluto is about three billion miles away and about 1400 miles in diameter. Cool stuff, hope Pluto is not demoted, hate when knowledge from teh time I was young is changed.!!!


By the way Quaoar is the name for a creation force in Southern Californian Indian mythology. It will make a nice word for studying Google, there are only five references to it tonight in Google.
