For your edification, Red Panda provides a few stats on this latest celestial object:
- It's at least 20 percent bigger than Pluto, but three times farther away from the Sun.
- Its orbit is highly elliptical, tilted at a 45-degree angle to the ecliptic, and 560 Earth years long.
- Its surface temperature is barely above absolute zero.
- It made its first appearance in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, but later starred in its own hit spinoff series.
But what Red Panda would really like to know is: If Xena has a moon, will it be called "Chakram"?
