Daniel writes in with the goods news about the the Kuiper belt object formerly known as (136472) 2005 FY9 – it has been rechristened Makemake and classified as a dwarf planet and plutoid by the International Astronomical Union. Makemake has appeared here before and we welcome this new addition to the universe of making.
Thanks Palomar Observatory – M.E. Brown, C.A. Trujillo, and D.L. Rabinowitz!
MAKE – Easter Island here we come!
