THE SOUND OF PLUTO

Little Pluto-Science Reporter

by Little Pluto, Science Reporter, Tuesday 29th May 2012.

It’s been a tough time for us Plutonians since we were demoted to dwarf status. However we are a resilient bunch, although at times we have felt very left out, we still exist and operate as we always have. We are just having to deal with the human’s new awakenings. A lot of the problems arose inside our wider community of the Kuiper-belt where objects bigger than Pluto underscored our shaky status.

We were overthrown by the almighty “Xena”. ( In fact Xena is now known as Enis, after the Greek goddess of discord and strife.) You see Pluto is suffering as a result of the technology revolution. In the old days earthly scientists were unable to see clearly to the outer planets and what was there. Now with their new fan dangle toys they cited “Xena” who is just a little bit bigger than us Plutons. She has more attitude and to be seen by the humans through Hubble, she pranced around in front of the new technical telescopes of the human scientists.

Xena,also known as Enis, Teasing her way to fame

As much as we love the Hubble space telescope its ability to hone in closer on our outer region is interfering with life as we knew it. Outsiders…They just come in and think they have the answers to problems. By the way, a lot of our problems did not exist until earthlings butted in. So now to earthlings we Plutonians are merely known as an asteroid  number dubbed 134340. Mmmmm oh to be a mere number…

We have always existed harmoniously with Xena, we knew she was there. We played together well, until she started showing off through her new human fame. Humans mean well, but they have big egos that can interfere with life as we know it at times.

PLUTO has always had 4 moons

In June 2011 the Hubble set its telescopic eyes on P4, now classified as another moon for us, saying that we now have 4 moons. That’s cool but we have always known we have 4 moons, just because these earthly scientist can now see it, they believe it. There is an old earthly saying, if you did not see the tree fall in the forest did it really happen?

This column is not meant to be a whinge session about new human judgments on our world, the world we Plutonians always knew existed. (I do like earthlings they are funny little creatures:) ) What I really wanted to share with you all, is the cool sounds of Pluto. We have been jamming up here for millenniums creating great sounds waves. We have been rocking out and making molecules vibrate for gillion of years. Although for humans, they could never really hear the wonderment of our sound. Because you see sound needs a medium to travel through to be heard by the human ear.

Sounds of space silence

On Earth, sound travels to your ears by vibrating air molecules. In deep space, the large empty areas between stars and planets, there are no molecules to vibrate. There is no sound there. It’s that cool tranquil quarts rock jazz groove of the sound of silence, but its not really silent to all ears.

So, in order for sound to travel, there has to be something with molecules for it to travel through. That’s how Astro Joey and the Cosmic Rays came to discover the Planet Pluto vibe. It was carried through Astro Joeys Blue jet and so her band could hear the Pluto sound.

Take a listen in the video and hear for yourself.    SOUND OF PLUTO

It’s been very cool because Astro Joey and The Cosmic Rays have really encourage me not to let the new human discoveries get me down. So Astro Joey said when you get built up emotions, instead of getting angry just express them in music. So Astro Joey and the Band, invited me to come play with them. It has been awesome and I learnt a lot. So much so, that some of the Electronica Bands around the cosmos have me helping them in the studio. I lay down the sound of Pluto and then the other musicians put down some cool melody’s and grooves. It’s a great thing to try. Give it a go.

So…..Rock on Pluto.
