It's certainly pretty, but Pluto isn't really steampunk.....

I grant you, not as Steampunk as the above, but for a demoted planet, he is trying...


There are also a number of variations on this:

The discovery of the planet (very nice pictures, by the way, Maets) itself falls outside our normally accepted Steampunk timeline, however the Steampunk-embraced Cthulhu mythos identifies the (former) planet as Yuggoth, home of the Mi-go.
"The Whisperer in Darkness", 1931. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Whisperer_in_Darkness

Now, if these very detailed pictures of Pluto ever reveal "great tiers of terraced towers built of black stone", I'm gonna (noun).  Grin

Surely I'm not the only one who's noticed that one of Pluto's smaller moons, Kerberos, is also named after a dog. Funny coincidence, that ......

Now I've just realised that another Plutonian moon, Nix, is also named after a dog - a yappy little white poodle-pom cross that used to belong to a neighbour of mine ..... though why anyone would want to name a moon, even such an insignificant one, after an ankle-nibbling mutt with a bad attitude, is a mystery to rank with the Voynich Manuscript..... but three times is more than coincidence I think....

"Astonishing ‘Snakeskin’ Textured Mountains Discovered on Pluto"

http://www.universetoday.com/122516/astonishing-snakeskin-textured-mountains-discovered-on-pluto/#.VgWTXrEgpu4.twitter

“It looks more like tree bark or dragon scales than geology..."

Hmm...So, all my cracks about the Mi-go may wind up being more on the mark, after all...   

Well, sanity, it was nice knowin' ya... Shocked

Anyone read E. E. 'Doc' Smith's "Lensman" series? The Palainians have a presence on Pluto!
