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.

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

"What is the worst way you've been woken up?"

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
