Originally discovered shortly after Easter in 2005, Makemake was given the codename 'Easterbunny' while researchers investigated its existence and properties.
Upon realizing that it was a dwarf planet the scientists named it Makemake, after the creator of humanity and god of fertility in the mythos of the Rapa Nui, the native people of Easter Island, to preserve the object's connection with Easter.
About[edit | edit source]
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Makemake does not have a hidden ocean in its icecaps. It should be a fairly straightforward world to terraform.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
Makemake is very far from the sun, which means that it receives a small amount of the sun's light and heat. Even if we heat it, plant life can't survive on this dwarf planet, because it's very dark here.
