Discovered by Pluto has a satellite, Charon. Charon was discovered in 1978 by Jim Christy. was found by an fortunate accident by Clyde W Tombaugh trying to find ‘Planet X’. Not only does Charon rotate synchronously, but Pluto does too. So while traveling through the universe, the face the same sides. Pluto is smaller than seven of the solar system’s moons! Pluto is named after the Roman God of the underworld, Hades. Pluto is the only planet that has not been visited by an spacecraft. Some people think of Pluto as an large asteroid or comet rather than a planet.
You should go to Pluto because of its unique features. Pluto is 50 – 75% rock mixed with ices. Methane and traces of carbon monoxide are also present. This will help provide the best skiing adventure for you and your family! From Pluto’s surface, the sun appears as only a very bright star. So no need to bring sun block! Pluto has a satellite, Charon. Some prefer to think of Pluto/Charon as a double planet rather than a planet and a moon. Pluto has a 249 year orbit. It’s surface is believed to reach temperatures as low as –240 degrees. So remember to bring your ski gear and warm clothes. Because Pluto and Charon’s orbits are aligned, an eclipse can be seen every Pluto day.
Pluto is usually the farthest planet from the sun. Pluto is 5,914,520,000 km from the sun, and depending on it’s orbit around 4.4 billion km from earth. Pluto and Charon are 19,640 km apart. Usually,in an normal spacecraft, it would take you 6-8 years from Earth to Pluto.When Pluto is past it’s perihelion, the atmosphere freezes and falls to the surface. When it nears it’s perihelion it becomes a gas and that’s guests arrive. There will be many ice and snow sports available. For $1,000 extra, you can also explore Charon. Pluto’s only known satellite for a day! It will only take an hour to get there thanks to our spacecrafts. Pluto and Charon, ground-based view (left) and HST view (right). Pluto and Charon map view.
Pluto has an amazing number of exiting activities which will ensure that you and your family will never be bored. Since Pluto is nothing but ice and rock, we have a number of winter activities which we are sure you’ll enjoy. *Ice Skating- make sure you bring your skates, so you may participate in our skating competitions, located on ice fields all over our planet. *Skiing/Snowboarding- Pluto has over 1,000 ski resorts which will cater to all your winter needs. We also have parks complete with jumps and half pipes
*Mountain Climbing- Pluto contains some of the best mountains in our galaxy, and we offer programs for all levels of skills. *Space Jumps- A new activity exclusive to Pluto. Our spacecrafts will transport you in the atmosphere where you will jump out in an non-gravity space suit. *Art Fairs- Art Fairs are held once an year in February. It will feature ice, rock and snow representations of Pluto and its inhabitants.
For those who wish to be in contact with their home world, we have state of the art systems of radio astronomy for use at the charge of 60 Pluto dollars a minute. (There are currency exchange booths throughout Pluto that will exchange your home world currency.) We have approximately 100 satellites throughout Pluto, which are all connected to our main satellite near Charon. This satellite transmits you voice to all major planet’s satellites in the solar system, which in turn are sent to your family/friend’s personal satellite. For an extra charge, you may send images. It will take approximately 10 seconds to establish the connection.
We offer an unique tour to Pluto’s only known moon, Charon. It will occur during 8 o’clock am (Pluto time) to 6 o’clock p.m.. We will explore all the characteristics and views of Charon and Pluto too. We’ll also provide information about the stars and galaxies around Pluto. In our spacebus, we will orbit Charon once, in the morning, then land on Charon and eat an exclusive lunch in the Charon Restaurant. In the afternoon, we will explore Charon on foot, or if you request, we can provide an motorbike design for 100 extra dollars (Pluto money). We will discover Charon’s unique suprises! An Information pamphlet will also be available for those who are interested. This Pluto and USA comparison shows how small Pluto and Charon really are.
Pluto doesn’t really have that much history. It was discovered in February 18th, 1930 by Clyde W. Tombaugh. The planet was discovered by an fortunate accident, Tombaugh was trying to find “Planet X”, but found Pluto instead. Charon was discovered in 1978 just before its orbital plane moved edge-on toward the inner solar system. The Pluto was thought to be larger because the planet and it’s moon’s images were blurred together. Some still prefer to think of Pluto and Charon as a double planet rather than a moon. Pluto was named after the Roman God of the Underworld, Hades, because of its coldness. Charon was named after the mythological figure who ferried the dead across the River Acheron into the underworld. Pluto was thought to be wandering individually in space, then was captured by the sun.
