7 TOP NASA Scientists Say There are Over 100 Planets in Our Solar System

7 Top NASA scientists say we actually have over 100 planets in our solar system. If the team’s version of planetary definition is indeed widely adopted it would greatly expand the number of planets in our solar system from the current eight to around 110.
http://releases.jhu.edu/2017/03/16/scientists-make-the-case-to-restore-plutos-planet-status/

Most of us grew up learning that there are nine planets in our solar system. Back in 2006 that all changed, when Pluto was demoted from being labeled a proper planet to its new classification as a dwarf planet, leaving just eight true planets in our celestial neighborhood. Now, a group of scientists says Pluto should definitely be added back to the planet list — oh, and that there are over 100 other objects in our solar system that should also be called planets.

Kirby Runyon of Johns Hopkins University headed a six-man team of authors from five different scientific bodies in preparing their own version of how planets should be classified. Their argument and supporting information displayed at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in Texas.

The other authors are: S. Alan Stern and Kelsi Singer of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado; Tod Lauer of the National Optical Astronomy Observatory in Tucson, Arizona; Will Grundy of the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona; Michael Summers of George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.

In their paper, the researchers insist that the factors that should define whether a celestial body is a planet or not should relate solely to the object itself rather than things like location.

Seldom Seen Creek Brumby, Snowy River Catchment

Taking its name from Mount Seldom Seen, this unexplored small creek is typical of the fractured Gippsland high country. This creek cascades and falls unevenly in the high country, with larger falls on the slopes of the Mountain and down the escarpment to the NE of Gelantipy.

Edit:

One of the nice things about G+ is the way a post can built - thank you to my friend +Charlie Be

+Charlie Be wrote: "Sounds like a sacred place - sacred water. Thank you"

This made me think of other conversations about this area and i responded: "Thanks mate. The spiritual world of the First People is populated with distinctly Australian mythical creatures that differ from place to place. Today modern rural dwellers tend to lump them all together under the label 'Bunyip' and use it to scare kids away from dangerous places.
The First People (the insular Kurnai) in this area divided the mythological world into three groups of beings.
The first are the evil Narguns - stone beings that can detach themselves from the sides of mountains or emerge from holes in the ground. They drag travelers to their deaths underground.
The second are the friendly Yabungs that live in trees and give friendly warning of things to come by the crack of a dry branch.
Finally, there are the Mraats, pale colored (like the palm of a first person's hand - the color of death), who were thought to be spirits of the dead.
When the Kurnai first saw pale colored Europeans (mainly Scottish colonialists) they took fright thinking that they were Mraats.

You may never see a Nargun, Yabung or Mraat, but when alone in the bush you can feel their presence."

The response may seem spur of the moment, but is in turn the sum of dozens of other comments and discussions here over the past week. Thank you all for your inspiration - and thank you +Charlie Be

"Longing for Orion"

Back in April I took some shots of Orion setting over Lake Clifton. There were a few shots I left to process later as other field trips came up, and soon I had forgotten these - lost in the depths of my hard drive.

I finally returned. This image was close to the end of my session at the lake. Orion is touching the horizon, and the atmosphere is starting to wash out the colours.

This image is a 3 x 3 panel mosaic through a 85mm lens using a modified Canon EOS6D. All camera and lens settings were kept the same for all panels. A tracking mount was used for the sky and turned off for the foreground panels. Stitching in PTGui, colour calibration in PixInsight, noise reduction, saturation and some brightness / contrast adjustment in Photoshop. Details below.

Enjoy, Will.

Was the Earth ever frozen solid? | #Geology #GeologyPage

The movie The Day After Tomorrow depicts a catastrophic climate shift to global cooling, which is referred to as the new ice age. In the movie, melting of polar ice caused by global warming disrupts the North Atlantic current, rapidly dropping the ocean temperature, ultimately leading to the freezing of the ocean on a global scale.
