The newly discovered object is said to be four times farther from the sun than Pluto.
A new study revealed that Pluto’s four smaller moons might have been formed following a violent impact on Charon, the dwarf planet’s largest satellite.
NASA’s high-flying telescope was able to observe the blue-tinted haze surrounding the planet Pluto. Through the telescope’s observations, NASA was able to understand how the haze forms in Pluto’s atmosphere.
ViacomCBS Announces Expansion Of CBS All Access, New Tiered Streaming Structure With PlutoTV And Showtime

Scientists found evidence of ammonia on Pluto's reddish ice.
Subsurface oceans might be more common in the universe than previously believed.
A large planet in the outer reaches of the solar system has been hypothesized for years, and the behavior of some small trans-Neptunian objects is often held up as evidence for the existence of “Planet Nine.”
In 2006, the International Astronomical Union, a global body responsible for planetary classification, took away Pluto's designation of solar system's ninth planet.
The probe is currently 162 million miles (262 million km) away from its next target and covering 760,200 miles (1,223,420 km) every day.
NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft passed dwarf planet Pluto in 2015, and its data showed Pluto’s surface has dunes, like Earth, Mars, Venus, Saturn’s moon Titan and even the comet 67P.
A group of scientists posited this theory after running cosmological models using NASA’s New Horizons data on Pluto and findings of European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission on comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.
As per theories, Planet Nine could be 10 times the mass of Earth and 20 times farther from the sun than Neptune.
The names primarily focus on the idea of human explorations, with some honoring the people involved in it in some way or the other.
There are a ton of planets out there in the universe, and each one is different from the next.
Watch NASA announce the finalists for the next New Frontiers mission today. Who are the teams in contention and what do they want NASA to study next?
Subsurface oceans on icy bodies in the outer solar system, beyond Neptune’s orbit, could exist because of their interaction with their moons, including on Pluto.
The New Horizons spacecraft has gotten us closer than ever to Pluto and shown NASA how complex this dwarf planet really is.
Pluto is so cold because weird particles in its atmosphere are eating up all the heat.
NASA has debunked several doomsday theories in the past. Scientific explanations are in place against the Nibiru theory too.
Pluto has icy structures on its surface that are as big as skyscrapers, and scientists are trying to figure out how these mysterious things formed.
NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft is going to solve the mystery of whether this ancient space object is one weird-shaped rock or two that are close enough to touch each other.
Planet 10? Pluto had its planetary rank ripped away from it, but there could be two more planets out there waiting to take its place.
On three days in June and July, scientists will train their telescopes and cameras on a small object over 4 billion miles away, as it passes in front of different stars.
Neptune appears to be moving backward in its orbit in these images taken by the Kepler spacecraft, but it’s all a trick.
An unmanned mission to Pluto is in the works at NASA.
Neil deGrasse Tyson’s tweets make us laugh and make us cry … from laughter.
