2019-11-13T23:10:49Z via NavierStokes To: PublicI love it when math and physics work together. On a personal note: it was a paper by Parke that was the basis of my very first analysis in graduate school, in service of the then hunt for the Higgs particle at LEP. https://www.quantamagazine.org/neutrinos-lead-to-unexpected-discovery-in-basic-math-20191113/

He's just received his official name, proposed by the NH team who discovered him, & now accepted by the IAU. It's a Powhatan word meaning "sky." A reminder to all to keep looking upward!😊#Space https://twitter.com/Plutoliveshere/status/1194357211188752385/photo/1
