New Dwarf Planet found in Solar system is almost half the size of Pluto’s moon Charon

A new member has added to the solar family with the discovery of a new dwarf planet beyond the orbit of Pluto. The dwarf planet has a long looping orbit around the sun beyond the realms of Pluto. The dwarf planet has been designated as 2014 UZ224. It is large enough to be qualified as a dwarf planet.

The 2014 UZ224 makes one orbit of its parent star in 1100 Earth years. In comparison, one year on the dwarf planet Pluto happens to be equal to 248 Earth years. The latest discovered member measures about 530 kilometres. It is located 13.7 billion kilometres from the sun. The Pluto’s moon Charon measures 1200 kilometres in diameter and could reach a maximum distance of 7.3 billion Kilometres from the sun.

The discovery has been confirmed by the Minor Planet Center. The latest discovery has been made by an instrument called the Dark Energy Camera or the DECam. The universe was formed in a big bang and is continually expanding and accelerating, and the energy which brings about this expansion is known as Dark Energy. The DECam is designed in a way to observe the galaxies and supernovas as they expand and move away from earth. The actual goal is to provide a means to study the dark energy and its origin.

The project has been named Dark Energy Survey, and it uses the data provided by DECam to create a map of the universe. The DEScam Map is already being used to study dark energy and to seek out unidentified objects. It must be remembered that Dark Energy makes up 80% of the mass of the universe but it has still not been identified or its nature was known. Part of the DES project is to map certain portions of the sky once every week. According to mission’s website, a number of discoveries are made during this process of studying a part of the heavens.
