This Week in Space: Hubble Telescope Discovers New Moon in Our Solar System #NASA
Approximately 100 miles in diameter, the tiny moonlet – named “MK2” – is orbiting the dwarf planet Makemake, itself discovered in 2005.
Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope discovered a moon orbiting dwarf planet Makemake — the third largest known object past the orbit of Neptune, about two thirds the size of Pluto. Further observations of this moon may allow astronomers to calculate Makemake’s mass, which will give them a better idea of its density and thus its bulk composition.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
