Scientists Discoveries on Dwarf Planet Makemake
Space researchers' latest discovery is talking about the dwarf planet Makemake, which was previously thought to be similar to other dwarf planets like Pluto. The above conclusions have been drawn from the findings of a new study, which are clearly suggesting that the dwarf planet Makemake is not like Pluto as it has one very significant difference, which is: it lacks a potent atmosphere.
According to the details provided by the space experts, Makemake is only two-third of the size of the planet Pluto and also it has a chilly exterior as it lies at a far distance from sun. Moreover, Makemake also lacks moons, which scientists believe has made it a tougher planet for them to be studied any further.
"As Makemake passed in front of the star and blocked it out, the star disappeared and reappeared very abruptly, rather than fading and brightening gradually. This means that the little dwarf planet has no significant atmosphere", says team leader Mr. Jose Luis Ortiz, from the Instituto de Astrofisica de Andalucia in Spain.
With this observation, scientists have been able to calculate the dwarf planet's density for the first time, which helped them concluding that they are yet very far from the actual facts of these mysterious bodies.
