Pluto is 2 years old and in need of a forever home. "He's a big cuddle bug," said Sarah Meyers, from the St. Joseph County Humane Society. "We think he'd do really good with kids and other dogs as well." It's St. Pitty's Week, and that means you can adopt a pit bull from the Humane Society for just $17.

Flagstaff, AZ - Nearly every major Pluto-related discovery has ties to Flagstaff, Arizona, particularly Lowell Observatory.

Researchers are considering the possibility that the most famous dwarf planet may contain a layer of organic material beneath its surface heated into a thick, tar-like substance. The idea, which remains speculative, could affect scientists' understanding of how Pluto is built. Because Pluto was born in the icy ...
"I agree with you that Pluto is really cool - in fact, who would have believed that Pluto has a heart? ... It's a fascinating world that appears to be constantly changing.

News Brief: Nearly three years after flying past Pluto, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft is heading for a target more than 4 billion miles from Earth. It's officially known as 2014 MU69, but now the New Horizons team has decided to call it Ultima Thule (“UL-ti-ma THOO-lee”), or Ultima for short. Ultima Thule is ...
This illustration provided by NASA shows the New Horizons spacecraft. On Wednesday, March 14, 2018, NASA said the spacecraft is headed toward a New Year's Day 2019 encounter with a mysterious object nicknamed "Ultima Thule", 1 billion miles beyond Pluto on the fringes of our solar system.
Alan Stern: Pluto has its own personality, and the heart is probably one of the biggest parts of that. We named that heart Tombaugh Regio after the discoverer of Pluto, Clyde Tombaugh. When we were far away, 100 million miles away — as far as the Earth from the Sun — and first training our cameras on ...
Having been missing for three weeks now, the Cyprus rescue dog was caught in a dog trap that had been set up for him at Ryde Golf Club. Dog lovers raised more than £1,300 to help capture Pluto and the unspent money will now go towards Pluto for vet treatment, a harness, treats and possibly a ...
1. When I made the video that is attached to these scribbles, Kevin Love had not broken his hand. I was concentrating on how the Cavs need to handle Isaiah Thomas and other players coming off the bench. 2. In other words, I was talking about coaching. And I think Tyronn Lue has had a difficult time ...

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Baker Mayfield as the No. 1 pick in the draft by the Cleveland Browns? I have a hard time believing the Browns will actually do that, despite several nice comments about Mayfield from Browns general manager John Dorsey. In my weekend Browns notes, I took a hard look at Mayfield ...
There are still some unanswered questions about the Cleveland Indians' controversial Chief Wahoo mascot. The Indians will stop using the logo on uniforms in 2019, the year the team hosts the All-Star game. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto was the only local reporter to get an interview with Indians' owner ...
Ever since the controversial August 2006 decision by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) to downgrade Pluto to a dwarf planet, debate over the former planet's status has continued both in science and in pop culture. In late January 2018, drawing on this debate, rumors about Pluto's “reclassification” ...
We all wish we could meet our heroes at some time or another — even if those heroes are cartoon dogs. Where better to fulfill that wish than at the place where dreams come true? A friendly service dog named Atlas got to do just that when he had the opportunity to meet classic Disney canine Pluto at ...

With his friend recording, Julian Gavino took his Golden Retriever to meet Pluto Friday night at Epcot. Gavino told ABC News until this past week, ...
I also said I have no criticism of fans who wanted to march and protest. It really is their right to do so. Besides, I sit in the pressbox. I'm not a season ticket holder. So my opinion on the fan parade lacks the same legitimacy as that of the paying customers. Good news was the parade happened without any ...
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Jimmy Garoppolo trade to the San Francisco 49ers never made much sense. The 49ers traded a second-round pick, a rather modest price for the New England Patriots highly-regarded backup quarterback. The Patriots also were able to add veteran Brian Hoyer as a backup.
With a 5-0 record for the San Francisco 49ers this season, Jimmy Garoppolo has emerged as one of best young quarterbacks in the NFL. ( AP ). Comment. 0 shares. By Terry Pluto, The Plain Dealer · terrypluto2003@yahoo.com. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Jimmy Garoppolo trade to the San Francisco 49ers ...
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Should the Cleveland Cavaliers trade for DeAndre Jordan of the Los Angeles Clippers? For months, I heard that question. For months, I dismissed it. Why should the Cavs add a 6-foot-11, offensively challenged center? That's especially true in an era that seemingly dismisses the ...
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- If you're Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen, why would the Cleveland Browns be anywhere near the top of your list of future NFL destinations? Both quarterbacks are California guys. Darnold is from San Clemente and then played at USC. Rosen is from Los Angeles and played at UCLA.
If they want to do it, that's their right. I'm not going to stop them from going outside in Saturday's expected wind-chill below zero. It's their right to try and catch pneumonia. The point of the parade is to embarrass the Cleveland Browns and owner Jimmy Haslam for having an 0-16 season. I still don't see how a ...
PITTSBURGH, Pa. -- Scribbles in my notebook after the Cleveland Browns lost, 28-24, to the Pittsburgh Steelers: 1. Once again, Hue Jackson praised his team for "playing hard" after the Browns lost. But part of effort is avoiding some disastrous mental mistakes. The Browns are the NFL's youngest team.
After New Horizons slipped by Pluto in July 2015, it continued on through the Kuiper Belt, the ring of icy objects beyond Neptune. The team quickly obtained permission to embark on an extended mission, with MU69 as its selected target. In preparation for the upcoming visit, the scientists arranged to ...
With vaporous plumes shooting out from supposed hydrothermal vents deep beneath its frozen surface, which is probably hiding an ocean swimming with strange microbes, Enceladus is currently in the spotlight as the ocean world scientists are impatient to probe. But then there's Pluto. Wait. What was that about a ...
As Pluto (Mallory Wu) departs the solar system looking for a way to regain planet status, a pair of passionate astrophysicists (Duncan & Aria Shahghasemi) who have just launched the New Horizons probe fields the fallout on Earth. The story of Pluto's journey, created by Mann, was prompted by his desire ...
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- There are a variety of reasons that it's stupid to quickly grade trades and drafts. But when it comes to the Cleveland Cavaliers deal with the Boston Celtics, two quick grades come to mind. Boston receives an A-plus. Kyrie Irving demanded the Cavs trade him. The Cavs could have ...
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- I can write a book about all the things Hue Jackson should change heading into 2018. The Cleveland Browns coach obviously needs a lot of help with game management. Jackson managed to appear to be doing too much during games ... and not enough. Too much, as in too much ...
NASA has announced that the probe's next target will be 2014 MU69, a mysterious, irregularly shaped celestial body about 16 miles long and a billion miles away from Pluto. The nametag stems from it being first observed by the Hubble telescope in the year 2014. If the mission is successful, MU69 will be ...
The Cavs' Christmas Day loss to the Warriors shows they still have some work to do to compete against the defending champs. The Cavs lost 99-92 in the first meeting between the two teams since the NBA Finals. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says there were pluses and minuses from Monday's game for ...
1. The thing I liked best was the pace of the game. It was played in the 90s. The Warriors wanted to run the Cavs off the court, but could not. Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals was 93-89, Cavs. It was an ugly game. So was this one. 2. There are a lot of asterisks about this game. The Warriors didn't have Steph ...
DeShone Kizer and the Browns had a hard time keeping themselves lined up correctly in Chicago. ( Joshua Gunter / cleveland.com ). Comment. 0 shares. By Terry Pluto, The Plain Dealer · terrypluto2003@yahoo.com. CHICAGO -- In some ways, this was the worst game of the season for the Cleveland ...
1. Where's the progress? That's a fair question to ask. A year ago, the Browns were 1-15. Hue Jackson promised he'd "jump in the lake" if that happened again. Well, they are 0-15. Jackson fell into his usual "we continue to fight" mantra. But on this snowy Sunday, I don't think that was true. Several players ...
With every passing year, more and more extra-solar planets are discovered. To make matters more interesting, improvements in methodology and technology are allowing for the discovery of more planets within individual systems. Consider the recent announcement of a seven-planet system around the ...
By Terry Pluto, The Plain Dealer · terrypluto2003@yahoo.com. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A new general manager allows the Cleveland Browns to share hope that the team will improve. That's especially true for John Dorsey, who replaced Sashi Brown in that job last week. Most fans know the big questions:.
Terry Pluto says former Browns Vice President Sashi Brown made some big drafting mistakes that sealed his fate with owner Jimmy Haslam. Brown passed on quarterback Carson Wentz with the No. 2 pick in the 2016 draft. He also passed on quarterback DeShaun Watson with the No. 12 pick this year.
A few weeks ago, these adorable and festive popcorn buckets were introduced. When I saw them floating around Instagram, I knew I had to have one. Pluto is arguably the best of the good boys, so it's only natural that he would be picked to carry your popcorn around! Pluto Holiday Popcorn Bucket.
And, boy, were we surprised. We saw a world that is dynamic and mysterious. We discovered that Pluto, 4.67 billion miles from Earth, is a world with glaciers made of solidified nitrogen (you are breathing nitrogen right now), mountains of water ice (the largest ice cubes in the solar system), plains covered by ...
Calling Pluto a dwarf planet doesn't make it any less interesting or significant, incidentally. In some ways Pluto is now even more significant, because it is the archetype of a whole population. Studying it reveals a ... What really matters, though, is that Mercury is one of a kind and Pluto is not. Put it this way: if ...
Subsurface oceans could still slosh beneath the icy crusts of frigid, faraway worlds such as the dwarf planets Pluto and Eris, kept liquid by the heat-generating tug of orbiting moons, according to a new study. "These objects need to be considered as potential reservoirs of water and life," lead author Prabal ...

It was a lazy, hazy, crazy day on Pluto when a spacecraft from Earth flew by at a blistering speed of 31,000 miles per hour two years ago.
