"Pluto" from the album "The Universe"


Pluto is the Roman god of the underworld.  This is currently the 9th and the farthest planet in our solar system.   There is also a possible chance of a 10th planet that may be even further out known as planet X or Eris.  Pluto from the Sun It is about 3.7 Billion miles and takes about 248 years to make one complete orbit. 

During this time it has yet to make a complete orbit since its discovery on February 18th 1930 by Clyde Tombaugh.  A day is a bit longer than ours about 6 Earth days.  The size is about half the width of the United States.  Charon is the largest of Pluto’s 5 moons others are Styx, Nix Kerberos, and Hydra.  The orbit of Charon and Pluto are locked together and if you had a bridge you could walk across it.  They both orbit around a point in space.  This would give it a unique orbit to each other.  It would take you about 9 years to reach Pluto, which on July 14 2015 the New Horizons spacecraft arrives to Pluto.  It discovers more and more qualifications of a planet.  It even has a slight atmosphere of 20 haze layers and has a quarter of the amount of Earth’s pressure. 

Approaching the planet it has a red or pinkish tinge to it with a white heart shape about the size of Texas on its surface called Sputnik Planitia.  The temperature on Pluto is -369 degree Fahrenheit.  This would mean if your arm were exposed at all, it would shatter like glass.  There are colors a type of creamy brown in the snow which may be dirt mixed in it.  There are three type of ice such as nitrogen, carbon monoxide and methane.  Also Cryovolcanoes were discovered and may be part of the cause of Pluto’s surface.  Pluto is the only planet in the solar system other than Earth with Penitente, which look like jagged ice formations that are shaped like sharp teeth.  On Earth they are found in the Atacama Desert, but on Pluto they are much bigger and may be the size of mountains compared to the Earth.

When composing this piece, being the furthest planet in our solar system, I wanted to give it a distant and cosmic sound while at the same time wanting to maintain the mythology of the underworld.  Since its discovery with more and more being learned about it, I still wanted to portray and keep a small and yet mysteriousness about it.
