Researchers still try to make astronomy interesting. According to Time magazine, researchers discovered a moon around the dwarf planet Makemake.
The article has everything to make astronomy useless. They have a concept image of what the moon might look like in space; the name, Makemake, seems like a name that accidentally came out of a baby gurgling on her own saliva; and the writers of the article choose to write about the moon, the most boring aspect of space beside space itself.
Movies are made about asteroids. Other planets might contain life on them. But the moon has nothing interesting since Neil Armstrong landed on it, but even then it needed a conspiracy to make it interesting.
