The Most Distant Object Photographed In Our Solar System, Nicknamed 'Farout,' Is Pink ❤️
Farout @carnegiescience

Carnegie Institution for Science's Scott S. Sheppard, David Tholen from the University of Hawaii, and Northern Arizona University's Chad Trujillo found an object in the solar system appropriately named "Farout."


For the first time, an object in our solar system has been found more than 100 times farther than Earth is from the sun.

The International Astronomical+3602 Union's Minor Planet Center are calling the Farout a dwarf Planet. It appears to be around 310 miles across and looks pinkish in color. Apparently Farout isn't in any big hurry to get anywhere either. With it's slow orbit speed it will take the object over 1,000 years to cruise around the son.


Farout will get there when Farout gets there.

To get an idea of how far out Farout is, the sun is roughly 93 million miles away from us. That distance is called an astronomical unit (AU). Farout is 120 AU's away! For perspective Pluto is 34 AU away. Let that sink in.

And if that weren't cool enough, Farout is pink. Twitter is already enamored. (Even if Pluto isn't.)




People are still stinging over the downgrading of Pluto.


And they are loving the appropriate name.







People were tripping out on the vast Universe.






Space is cool.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

"What never fails to piss you off?"
