The dimensions of the satellite of Makemake ten times more moons of Mars.

Hubble opened a satellite of the dwarf planet, Makemake, which is located on the outskirts of the Solar system, according to NASA.

Telescope transmitted to Earth new photos of the icy neighbor of Pluto and scientists have found the moon a size of 160 miles. Planetary scientists called it MK2.

As stated by the employee of the southwest research Institute in boulder, Colorado, Alex Parker, the opening of a satellite of minor planet this is a very important event, because Makemake is in the class of rare objects platonopolis.

“The discovery of this moon gives us the chance to learn, Makemake much more than we would have succeeded if she hadn’t had the satellite”, – said the scientist.

He noted that astronomers had seen the moon, Makemake, but took it in the dark and cold spots on the surface of the planet, visible in the infrared range.

Until about the properties of this moon, almost nothing is known, except for its size, an unusual “vertical” orbits and the fact that it has a very dark, almost non-reflective surface.

According to Parker, knowing all the properties of the moon will help to explain how it arose, Makemake, what is this dwarf planet and how she was able to get a satellite whose size is about ten times more than the “companions of Mars” Phobos and Deimos and some other moons in the Solar system.

24 February, scientists announced the discovery of a new dwarf planet in the Solar system. 11 November last year it became known about another dwarf planet in our system.

In December last year scientists said that in the far reaches of our Solar system, there are super-earths and put forward on this occasion several hypotheses.

Makemake, is the third largest dwarf planet in the Solar system. Refers to TRANS-Neptunian objects, plutoids. Is the largest of the known classical Kuiper belt objects.
