~ Create An Alien ~
This is my alien. His name is Gary Bloobinschneiger. He is currently living on Pluto. Gary is 90 years old on Earth, but on Pluto he is .393 of a Plutonian year. Although my alien does not actually weigh as much as I am about to say he does, he would weigh that much if I had all the supplies needed to weigh him down and make him have a larger mass. In "real life", he weighs 14 pounds on earth. However, since he lives on Pluto, and not on Earth, he weighs 9 ounces in the standard Plutonian weight measurement. Gary lives on Pluto, which is the largest known object in the Kuiper Belt.
Since Pluto is no longer a main planet, and it is now a dwarf planet, it is not considered any amount of planets away. However, Pluto still remains 3.67 billion miles away from the sun, whether it's a planet or not. Even if it is not a planet anymore, it still remains 3.67 billion miles from the sun.
As of 2013, scientists have found out that Pluto has five known moons. The names of these five moons are Charon, Styx, Nix, Kerberos, and Hydra. Charon is Pluto's largest moon. Charon is about half the size of Pluto and weighs roughly seven times less than Pluto. Astronomers have come to believe that Charon might be covered with water ice. Nix and Hydra are very small moons that are thought to be between 30 and 100 miles across. The most recently found moons of Pluto are Styx and Kerberos. If there are any other moons around Pluto, they have not yet been discovered.
Pluto does have an atmosphere. It is thought to be a very thin, almost non-existent atmosphere. The little bit of atmosphere that there is is mainly made of nitrogen. Carbon monoxide and methane are also in Pluto's atmosphere. The weather on Pluto is not well-known, due to the fact that it is so far away, it would take ages for scientists to reach Pluto to gather information, only to come back so soon. At its warmest, Pluto is -369° F or -223° C. At its coolest, Pluto can reach all the way down to -387° F or -233° C.
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF PAGE:
It takes Pluto 247.9 Earth years to make one orbit around the sun, usually at the average speed of roughly 10,623 miles per hour. It takes Pluto 6.39 days to rotate in Earth days. A day on Pluto is 6.4 Earth days, which is 153.3 hours long. I sure would hate to have to go to school on Pluto. A year on Pluto is 247.7 Earth years. Pluto's diameter is only 2,390 kilometers across or 1,485.077 miles.
Pluto is the tenth most massive known body directly orbiting the sun. Pluto was discovered on February 18, 1930. Pluto was discovered by Clyde W. Tombaugh. Pluto is named after the Greek god of the underworld. Pluto was the solar system's ninth planet at one point, but it was reclassified as a dwarf planet in 2006. Pluto is the second largest dwarf planet, and Eris is the first.
Pluto is smaller than a number of moons, which are Ganymede, Titan, Callisto, Io, Europa, Triton, and the Earth's moon. No spacecraft has visited Pluto. In July 2015, the spacecraft by the name of New Horizons that was launched in 2006 is scheduled to fly by Pluto on its way to the Kuiper Belt.
DESCRIPTION OF ALIEN:
Gary has a very thick layer of orange skin that covers his purple layer and keeps him warm in the harsh cold atmosphere and climate of Pluto. His green eyes can move all the way to the back of his head, so that he can see around him at all times. These green eyes come in handy when he is making sure no predators are near him or sneaking up on him. Gary's blue eyes are lasers so that he can zap his prey or demolish his predators. (Sounds harsh, right?) Lastly, Gary's brownish/copper-ish colored eyes are for night vision, since Pluto is so dark, due to how far away it is from the sun. His mouth is used to eat his prey (just like us!) His antennas are used to sniff out prey, using his eyes as well. That is why he weighs so much, because with all of his adaptions, he finds food easily, so he eats a ton of food. Gary is an omnivore, and he is a consumer. Gary is second most dominant predator in Pluto's food chain, underneath Stitch, but Gary doesn't need to worry about Stitch anymore, because Stitch is now living in Hawaii with Lilo.
Most authors were not listed on here, because they were mainly factual articles instead of literal stories. If there are any author names that I missed, I will fix it when/if I find out.
Anyways... Finally done. Sorry if reading this almost made you fall asleep.
GOOD NIGHT FINALLY. [:
