"Atom" Work Episode

The parents of "Atom" were built with the 1st time. Although it was for giving a reader familiarity by making home him, the idea parents were made after a child was received in the reader.
"Astro Boy" became what takes the method of the situation drama instead of a TV saga like the Tezuka comics till then, therefore one talk finishes as 4,5 times.
Atom hides sweat and also sheds tears. Atom may start a flood or may extinguish a fire for tears.
"Atom" in Showa 31 is taller and more precocious him in Showa 26. But "Atom" has returned pretty again Showa 35. This is because troubled Osamu Tezuka drew childish "Atom" for new young readers, each time the readers of "Atom" have grown gradually, have got bored by childlike "Atom", and has become an adult who cannot have pleasure in reading it.

Two new candidates of satelllite in Pluto were discovered with the Hubble space telescope.

Two discovered candidates of satellite

Vision of Pluto system

Satellite Charon was discovered in Pluto in 1978. Afterwards, other satellites were found in succession in other Edgeworth Kuiper Belt Objects. However, there is no heavenly body where two or more satellites had been discovered up to now.
When the Hubble space telescope took a picture of Pluto on May 15th and 18th this year, two hevenly bodies were discovered at the distance of about 43,000 kilometers from Pluto. This corresponds from 2 to 3 times the distance of Pluto with satellite Charon which has been known up to now.
Moreover, these two heavenly bodies moved surroundings turn Pluto. At present, the sign named S/2005 P1 and S/2005 P2 were given as for these candidate heavenly bodies.
It will be scheduled to observe it again for the Hubble space telescope to receive this observation result, and to confirm whether these candidate heavenly bodies are really satellites next February.
