Waimoku Falls–A 400 Foot Waterfall!

Waimoku Falls–A 400 Foot Waterfall!

Ashley Potter, Writer

Located in Haleakala National Park, Waimoku Falls makes all hikers on the Pipiwai Trail stop and gaze at the beautiful 400 foot waterfall. This national park, stationed in Southeast Maui, Hawaii, attracts all levels of hikers and tourists. Due to the low elevation of 600 feet, visitors can hike on this trail from 2-4 hours and not feel tired. After passing the enormous banyan tree, the picturesque view of the Makahiku Falls, and through the scenic bamboo forest, hikers reach the Waimoku Falls.

Planet 9—A New Member in the Universe?

Planet 9—A New Member in the Universe?

Britney Russo, Writer

Could scientists have found a new planet to add to history books? For a planet that has not technically been discovered yet, Planet Nine generates much discussion. Astronomers have not yet found a new planet orbiting the sun. Yet some remote icy bodies keep dropping clues that a giant orb may remain lurking on the fringes of the solar system. Six hunks of ice in the debris field beyond Neptune travel on orbits that aligned with one another. Planetary scientists Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown at Caltech in Pasadena, California described the curious orbits last month. Gravitational tugs from the known planets should have twisted their orbits around by now. Computer models now suggest their continuing shared alignment could explain the presence of a distant planet. It appears roughly 10 times as massive as Earth and comes no closer to the sun than about 30 billion kilometers, 200...  Read More »
