Haumea

Haumea

The Fastest moving object in our Solar System.

The Fastest moving object in our Solar System.

Haumea and it s name

Haumea and it’s name

  • Haumea’s name is derived from a Hawaiian mythology goddess, as this planet was discovered by a group of Hawaiian Scientists. Haumea is the goddess of childbirth, and had the god of volcanoes.


Haumea s position in our solar system

Haumea’s position in our Solar System

  • Haumea resides in the Kuiper Belt, which is 30 to 50 AUs away from the sun. An Au stands for Astronomical unit which is an equal length to 149,597,871 kilometers on the Earth. So it’s anywhere from 424487936130 kilometers to 7479893550 kilometers away from the earth. You try getting there in a space shuttle.


Rotation on haumea s axis

Rotation on Haumea’s axis

  • Haumea’s days are only about a sixth of ours. Their whole day is only 3 hours and 55 minutes. That’s pretty amazing!


Size of haumea

Size of Haumea

Haumea is 4.2x1021 km in diameter. It’s only 28% the mass of Pluto, and 6% the mass of the Earth’s moon. It’s super tiny.


Gravity composition and appearance of haumea

Gravity, composition, and appearance of Haumea.

  • Unfortunately, since my planet is so new and far away from Earth, We have not been able to find out it’s gravity or composition. :(

  • Luckily, it’s appearance is extremely rocky, and it has a thin layer of ice. The average temperature of Haumea -241*C, and -402*F.


The moons of haumea

The moons of Haumea

  • Haumea has two moons. (explained in the next two slides) One is named Hi’iaka, and the other Namaka. Scientists believe that these moons were probably made by an asteroid or meteor flying through space struck Haumea, and the two rocks became it’s moons.


Hi iaka

Hi’iaka

Hi’iaka

  • Originally named Rudolph, Hi’iaka is mostly made up of an icy water surface, and is the slower on of the two. It only orbits Haumea every 49 days, and is the larger and brighter moon.

Namaka

Namaka

  • Originally named ‘Blitzen’, Namaka was is the smaller and speeder than the other one, and orbits Haumea every 18 days. It’s very eccentric, like it’s planet. Unfortunately, We haven’t seen enough of it to figure out it’s surface.

Rings and how we would fare on haumea

Rings and how we would fare on Haumea

  • Haumea has no rings, and we haven’t actually ever traveled to Haumea, so I’m not sure how we would fare. ):


Discovery of haumea

Discovery of Haumea

  • Haumea was originally supposed to be named Santa, as it was discovered on December 28th, 2004. The main scientist of the group, Mike Brown, was Really hoping to find the tenth planet. Sadly, Haumea was significantly smaller than Pluto. So he kept on the DL until it could actually prove it was a planet, and get a closer look at it. It was going to be announced on July 7th, 2005, but Mikes daughter was born, putting that off for a couple of weeks.


Interesting facts about haumea

Interesting facts about Haumea

  • Haumea’s extreme speed makes it an elongated shape, and it looks kind of like an oval more than a sphere. Haumea also has an obscure red spot on it, which is interesting to watch spin. The spot could be an indent, but scientist are not sure.
