Makemake : Dwarf Planet

Along with fellow dwarf planets Pluto, Eris and Haumea, Makemake is located in the Kuiper Belt, a region outside the orbit of Neptune. Slightly smaller than Pluto, Makemake is the second-brightest object in the Kuiper Belt as seen from Earth (while Pluto is the brightest). It takes about 305 Earth years for this dwarf planet to make one trip around the sun.

Makemake holds an important place in the history of solar system studies because it—along with Eris—was one of the objects whose discovery prompted the International Astronomical Union to reconsider the definition of a planet and to create the new group of dwarf planets.

Makemake was named after the Rapanui god of fertility.


Discovery
Makemake was discovered Mar. 31, 2005 by M.E. Brown, C.A. Trujillo, and D. Rabinowitz at the Palomar Observatory.

Size and Distance
With a radius of approximately 444 miles (715 kilometers), Makemake is 1/9 the radius of Earth. If Earth were the size of a nickel, Makemake would be about as big as a mustard seed.

From an average distance of 4,253,000,000 miles (6,847,000,000 kilometers), Makemake is 45.8 astronomical units away from the sun. One astronomical unit (abbreviated as AU), is the distance from the sun to Earth. From this distance, it takes sunlight 6 hours and 20 minutes to travel from the sun to Makemake.

While many people on earth do not care for their parents,
some on earth purposely do not see their father, grand father, father in law who has left life but is about to leave this earth.

Science increases age.
These born humans are so myopic thinkers & are so egoistic that they forget that
a day will come when they are grand parents or parents.
What is their children or grand children ask them : Did you see your father or grandfather or father on law when he was about to leave earth ?
Only they can tell you.
While we keep privacy, it will be known worldwide if they kill related persons or do accdident in such a way that they will think nobody will know the truth. But we believe in police and the mental as well as physical science they use to know the truth.
And they even can play smart life game by asking
their neighbours or relatives or friends in legal or medical system to do it, thinking they are free. But world will know the truth one day (when they are alive or dead. At least their grandson or graddaugher will know it)

As of now, we think there are humans on this planet and if we see them on another planet one day, we dont want this egoistic attitude transferred to them, not even robots.
