In mythology, the underworld is a generic term referring to any place where the souls of the dead go. Pluto, according to Roman mythology (Hades for the Greeks), was the god of death and ruled the underworld, where he lived fiercely and mercilessly, preventing those who tried to escape from the underworld from leaving. Everything that death harvested on Earth fell back under the scepter of this god, increasing his wealth or becoming his prey. From the day he inaugurated his kingdom, not one of his ministers infringed his orders, not one of his subjects attempted a rebellion. Of the three sovereign gods who controlled the world, he was the only one who never feared insubordination or disobedience, and his authority was universally recognized…..
All the planets of the Solar System are named after gods of Greek and Roman mythology. Pluto, however, seems to have lost its universal authority. Beyond the orbit of Neptune and Pluto is a large number of objects orbiting the Sun that form a ring called the Kuiper Belt (KC). The objects in the KC are a remnant of the formation process of the Solar System. They provide us with very important information to know the origin of the planets of the Solar System, as well as other planetary systems around other stars in our Milky Way galaxy.
Pluto, Eris, Sedna and all the smaller CK objects are rich in ices and have similar characteristics. The characteristics and differences between the different types of Solar System objects allow us to classify the different types of objects into groups. Each group is associated with different mechanisms and processes that have acted during the formation process of the Solar System. When Pluto was discovered in 1930, it was not known that it was only the first object of hundreds of objects the same or like it in relation to its origin, classification, composition, orbit, etc.
I invite you to read Matias’ post with the topic of the day
Finally, I encourage everyone to reflect on the concept of the day. No one else but us can re-signify our own being
