Hume, the last planet in our solar system

Hume was discovered in 2003 by the astronomical Jose-Luiz Ortiz of the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia, and wore until now, EL61 name. The planet was identified in the Kuiper Belt, a conglomerate of celestial bodies found at a greater distance from the Sun than Neptune, the farthest planet in our solar system.

According to astronomers at Yale University, Hume was formed after a strong collision that occurred billions of years ago, the same collision that gave rise to its natural satellites, Hi'iaka and Namaka (name inspired by the same goddess daughters Hawaiian) .

Appointment to the planet has raised controversy among scientists as previous Pluto, who was demoted from planet status shortly after. "There are at least 50 celestial objects near Pluto which can be included in the definition of" dwarf planets, "said Mike Brown, one of Yale University researchers.
Denumirea este haumea, si nu humea. haumea a fost descoperita de mike brown in 2004 care a amanat prezentarea publica a descoperirii. jose luis ortiz moreno a anuntat in 2005 descoperirea, si nu in 2003. in prezent ambii sunt creditati cu aceasta descoperire. haumea nu este considerata o planeta, fiind o planeta pitica la fel ca si planetele pitice: ceres, pluto, makemake, eris.
