Buffy In Space

A "strange new object" has been found at the edge of the solar system. It was found beyond Pluto and has an orbit that is tilted much greater than most other objects in the solar system. While that is sort of cool that a discovery has been made, that is not what I enjoy most.

According to the article, Neptune is usually the cause for a tilted axis in our solar system, but scientists insist that did not happen here. The axis tilt is puzzling to experts. With that said, scientists have decided to nickname the object Buffy, "after the US television series about a vampire slayer...Maybe Buffy is going to be a bit of a theory slayer".

This is great as Buffy first started out as a National wonder, then became an International phenomenon, and now is a Galactic power! Maybe someday Buffy will rule the Universe. One can only hope.
