Humans Conquer Space Mysteries and Other Alarming Events (No. 1)

3 Apr 2012 VP 113

Last week (4th week of March, 2014) on planet Earth…

The humans continue to push out into space.  At this rate they’ll be capable of interstellar travel by the year 2233.  Of course, we are all alarmed, and measures to inhibit this activity are currently being discussed.

The humans’ need to catalog every little thing grows at an alarming rate.  Last week they discovered yet another dwarf planet in their outer solar system.  They are calling it: 2012 VP113, although we’re not entirely sure why (they have weird names for things).  This new object is not unlike the already discovered and similarly far from Earth body, Sedna.

planetary body 2012 VP113

This new body has the farthest perihelion of any planetary body the humans have yet discovered.

They figured out that it’s a small body, 300-1000 kilometers in diameter, and that it is moderately red.  This tells us two important things: They are finding new and interesting ways to “see” things they cannot naturally see with their eyes, and they are not able to detect us yet.  So nobody panic.
