Skating in the key of life

Pluto’s moons and Janey’s spin


As it turns out, the potato-like rock I found in my garden also looks like one of Pluto’s moons! Up until today, I didn’t even know that Pluto had moons.

And one of them, Nix, even rotates chaotically (there’s a cool video link in the N.Y. Times article on Pluto’s moons). Doesn’t that sound like a skater we know?

In contrast, Janey’s spins are not chaotic, but beautifully centered. This one is even at center ice!

So the next time I am a little out of control on the ice, just call me Nix!

Don't see me on the ice? I may be in the classroom or at the theater, or hanging out with my family and friends.

  1. I wish my spins always centered like that!


  2. Me, too! Go, Janey, go!
