15760 Albion

15760 Albion, provisional designation 1992 QB1, was the first trans-Neptunian object to be discovered after Pluto and Charon. Measuring about 108–167 kilometres in diameter, it was discovered in 1992 by David C. Jewitt and Jane X. Luu at the Mauna Kea Observatory, Hawaii. After they discovery, they dubbed the object ‘Smiley’ and it was shortly hailed as the tenth planet by the press, it is a "cold" classical Kuiper belt object and gave rise to the name cubewano for this kind of object, after the QB1 portion of its designation. Decoding its provisional designation, "QB1" reveals that it was the 27th object found in the second half of August of that year; as of January 2018, over 2,400 further objects have been found beyond Neptune, a majority of which are classical Kuiper belt objects. It was named after Albion from William Blake's mythology; this minor planet was named after Albion from the complex mythology of English poet and painter William Blake. Albion is the island-dwelling primeval man whose division resulted into The Four Zoas: Urizen, Luvah/Orc and Urthona/Los.

The name Albion itself derives from the mythological name of Britain. The official naming citation was published by the Minor Planet Center on 31 January 2018; the discoverers suggested the name "Smiley" for 1992 QB1, but the name was used for an asteroid 1613 Smiley, named after the American astronomer Charles Hugh Smiley. It has received the number 15760 and remained unnamed until January 2018; the next year in 1993, objects in similar orbits were found including 1993 SB, 1993 SC, 1993 FW, 1993 RO. Over one thousand bodies were found the Kuiper belt between orbiting between about 30-50 AU from the Sun in the twenty years, after finding 1992 QB1, showing a vast belt of bodies more than just Pluto and Albion. By 2018, over 2000 Kuiper belts objects were discovered.

List of wolfpacks of World War II

Wolfpacks were employed by Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine during World War II against Allied and neutral shipping. From the outbreak of war until mid-1940 there were various groups of U-boats engaged in collective patrols. With the exception of experimental Hartmann's wolfpack in 1939, the first recognised wolfpack was led by KrvKpt Günther Prien in June 1940. In preparation for the impending invasion of Norway and Denmark, in early April 1940, 31 U-boats were ready for operations between England and Norway. On 6 April, the codeword "Hartmut" was transmitted and German submarines began their designated operations. Edwards, Bernard. Dönitz and the Wolf Packs - The U-boats at War.

One kaiju that did not appear in a Godzilla movie, a miniature version of Dogora appears for a few episodes, working with Zaguresu. For unknown reasons, Ebirah, Manda, the Showa Mechagodzilla, King Kong, Minilla, Oodako and Shockiras were not included.

None of the Showa- or Heisei-era kaiju from Toho's other non-Godzilla movies appear in this series either. An unusually large number of tie-in toys were produced for this series by Bandai, because this series was, in fact, created through the use of action figures. A CD of theme music composed by Akira Ifukube, was released in 1997 by Polygram entitled'Welcome To Godzilla Island'. In 2007, a 4-disc DVD set including every episode of the show was released in Japan at a price of 16000 yen.
