In general, the album has received mixed reviews from music critics. RWD Magazine gave the album 4/5 stars and stated “Introspective and reflective, this borders on emo-rap on occasions, while retaining edginess on the sonic side. ” MTV UK gave the album a positive review stating “From hip-hop, to UK garage influences, this slick LP really does have it all. ” The Guardian’s Charlotte Richardson Andrews awarded the album 3/5 stars, saying “It’s difficult to reconcile Green’s more crass verses with his sentimental numbers; Astronaut’s tale of innocent rape victim turned junkie sits uncomfortably next to all the phallus jokes and Eminem-style sadism of songs such as ‘Into the Ground’. It’s a heavy, ambivalent confessional, but Green’s precocious personality and distinctive flow manage to keep it fired up. ” Jesal Padania of RapReviews gave the record a 7/10, praising the various production choices and Green’s lyrical content for showing an update in variety and character consistency, despite some off-kilter delivery and a feeling of lyrical depth being held back, concluding that it “might leave you wanting a little bit more of what he’s potentially best at. But make no mistake, it’s an album that displays growth, maturity and improvement in almost every respect – he’s certainly becoming a versatile and engaging artist. ”
Makemake is about a fifth as bright as Pluto. However, despite its comparative brightness, it was not discovered until well after a number of much fainter KBOs had been detected. Most of the scientific hunts for minor planets are conducted relatively close to the region of the sky that the Sun, Earth's Moon, and planets appear to lie in (the ecliptic). This is because there is a much greater likelihood of discovering objects there. Makemake is thought to have evaded detection during earlier searches because of its relatively high orbital inclination, as well as the fact that it was at its greatest distance from the ecliptic at the time of its discovery--in the northern constellation of Coma Berenices. At last, on July 1, 2004, the Cassini spacecraft fired off its breaking rocket, glided into orbit around Saturn, and started taking pictures that left scientists in awe. It wasn't as if they hadn't been prepared for such wonders. The weeks leading up to Cassini's arrival at Saturn had served to intensify their already heated anticipation. It seemed as if each approach-picture taken was more enticing than the one preceding it. "Titan is a very active moon. We already know that about its geology and exotic hydrocarbon cycle. Now we can add another analogy with Earth and Mars: the active dust cycle, in which organic dust can be raised from large dune fields around Titan's equator," Dr. Sebastien Rodriguez explained in a September 24, 2018 NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Press Release. Dr. Rodriguez is an astronomer at the Universite Paris Diderot, France, and the paper's lead author. The JPL is in Pasadena, California.
