Potential New Association?


#1

I wish to put forward a proposal for a new Association - Pluto.

It already has two regions of rugged mountains up to 11,000 feet (3,500 meters) high, including the informally named Norgay Montes in the foreground and Hillary Montes on the skyline

more information Here

The question is who could be the new AM?

The winter bonus would be interesting as its orbital period is 248 years and its axis of rotation is tilted at 120 degrees!

Its worse than that Karl, according to NASA the round trip time for a radio signal to/from Pluto is 9 hours! So the very best time for a successful activation would be 3 days! There wouldn’t have to be any of the “You’re 5 & 9 to me can you repeat your callsign” business.

…and then there’s Ceres, with just one solitary mountain -

looks like it has a good flat area on top for antennas!

Still, you could make a holiday of it, and go to see the other sights: the famous bright spots, craters and, errmm, more craters…
