(49036) Pelion, teen rebelliousness

(49036) Pelion is a centaur discovered in August of 1998. The orbit is around Uranus. It has a perihelion of 17.3 AU and an aphelion of 22.8 AU. It has an inclination of 9.3º. It has a diameter of about 37 km.

Greeek mythology

Pelion is the mountain in Thessaly where the Centaurs were said to live.

(49036) Pelion looks like a teenager and it is a bit chaotic. Can be rebel against authority, like Frost in the movie "Blade" (1998), and has a strong determination to be independent and autonomous, like Mulan in the Disney movie (1998), but can be imprudent and inexperienced, like Anakin in "Star Wars Episode II - Attack of the Clones" (2002). 

"Mulan" (1998)

(49036) Pelion vibrates with young energy and is full of life, like the song "Nas Ne Dogonyat" of Tatu. This centaur brings the freshness of the new generations, like in the movies "Dirty Dancing" (1987), "Mulan" (1998), "Bend It Like Bekham" (2002) and "Whale Rider" (2002).
