Pluto: being — and, perhaps, future ninth planet of Solar system


The American scientists have suggested to return to Pluto the status of the planet. The group of scientists of the University of the Central Florida of the Photo has addressed to scientific community: NASA/Reuters Pluto became last of the discovered planets of Solar system — the American astronomers have found him only in 1930. The celestial body was given the Roman option of a name of the Greek god Aida. The British girl Venice Berney, the granddaughter of the Oxford librarian has thought up the name. Now scientists from the University of the Central Florida suggest to return to Pluto the status of the planet. For understanding of scales: by the sizes he is one and a half times less than the Moon. Nevertheless an object it is proud I was called the planet — so far in 2006 something doesn't have gone not so. The chief researcher of Physical institute of Lebedev RAHN Sergey Bogachyov:sergey Bogachyov the chief researcher of Physical institute of Lebedev RAHN "Continues why Pluto have so offended in due time? There was a certain situation when several bodies which by the size are close to Pluto have been open and rotated approximately in the same orbit. And the question was actually not in whether to deprive Pluto of the status of the planet, and a question such: or to deprive Pluto of the status of the planet, well and respectively, all these bodies which were similar to him, for example, Erida are celestial such body, too to consider not planets; or on the contrary, all this collective farm, excuse for expression, to call planets. That is a question — eight planets in solar system, or 20 or maybe 50". New arguments of the American scientists are as follows: Pluto have deprived of the status of the planet, proceeding from the outdate and low-used definition of a celestial body. In particular, have reproached with an object that it hasn't cleaned with the gravitation around itself(himself) space — though this requirement meets exactly in one scientific work of the beginning of the 19th century. In the International Astronomical Union have already reacted: speak, submit the official address, we will discuss. As far as do we mean this question to astronomy? The director of astronomical institute of Shternberg Anatoly Cherepashchuk:anatoly Cherepashchuk the director of astronomical institute of Shternberg "Comments on it resolutely will change nothing. Starts of spacecrafts to planets, including to Pluto, pictures of his surface which have been made by the American space station, it considerably and essentially new data on the surface of the planet. That there are ice slopes that there very interesting structure of these surfaces which says that there is some tectonics defined even and so on. This is very interesting. And how to call, you know, call though a pot, only in the furnace don't put". Due to the discussion of the status of Pluto the recent remark of the Russian permanent representative in the UN Security Council Vasily Nebenzi is remembered. As the diplomat has said, in the West some would like that Russia was on other planet. And so, if to move, it is the best of all to Pluto. Even if won't return to an object the status of the full-fledged planet, he is ideal for Russia. Why? On р
