The state of play:


Despite its demotion from ninth-planet status (in 2006), Pluto is a special nexus of discovery, with no less than five moons now identified. Insofar as names tell us anything, it has horroristic Outer-NRx stamped all over it.

    A large enough Yuggoth could have an internal habitable zone, where the bioreactors are based on geothermal vents. At the correct depth for temperature, caves would have a tendency to collapse, but biological activity could keep them dredged. Since everything would have to live in dredged caves, there would be no relative fitness cost to dredging habits.

    In other words Yuggoth would be an fascinating tourist spot.

    Ultimately, heat-dissipation is the critical resource. Nano-robotic Trans-Neptunian colonization will prove delicious eventually.

    …where ‘large enough’ means enough radioactives. The moon and Mars don’t, so they don’t have any geothermal activity.

    The finding of Pluto is obvious on HPL’s works, but I’ve often wondered how much influence Hubble’s slightly earlier, and significantly more unsettling, discovery of the universe beyond our galaxy had.

    Hail Eris!

    Also, if you’re going to take an interest in Pluto due to HPL, you also ought to take an interest in Pohnpei. Not that that’s the only reason — they also built the first seastead, and I’m sure the Cathedral would love the class politics behind that.
