Good job scientists. Way to kick the little man down. Seriously, what'd Pluto ever do to you? It's like punching a dwarf, calling him a gnome, and then declaring it was all in the name of research.
On a more serious note... OUR GALAXY IS SHRINKING!! I have prime real estate on Jupiter and blazing, red hot lots left on Mercury and Venus! No reasonable offer refused!
Okay, super seriously now. What does everyone make of this turn of events? Generations of children were all taught that there were nine planets in our Solar System - now there are only eight. I know there was precedence for this kind of thing before, as a Planet named Ceres was down graded back in the 19th Century.
Whoa, I never bothered to read that article but thats what its about? Scientists killing off one of the nine planets because its smaller? Great now those two weeks of learning the nine planets was a waste of a day.

They didn't get rid of it to make a new intergalactic highway or anything, they just downgraded it from a planet, to a to a big rock in orbit around the sun (they meant that it was too small to be a planet)
I'm not terribly bothered by the demotion of Pluto to non-planet status.
The only interesting piece of trivia about it is that it was only discovered in 1930; and it has the weirdest orbit in the solar system.....the two interesting pieces of trivia about Pluto are that it was only discovered in 1930, and it has the weirdest orbit in the solar system; and it's "moon" doesn't orbit Pluto, it orbits a point a couple of kms off the surface.....the three interesting pieces of trivia about Pluto are that it was only discovered in 1930, it has the weirdest orbit in the solar system, and it's "moon" orbits a point a couple of kms off the surface; and it's not even close to spherical.....

Do you want to live on a "big rock in orbit around the sun"? NO! You want to live on a planet just like every other normal person in this Solar System. Only hermits, crazy people, and those without legs live on non-planets.Originally Posted by me_meza
Real people live on real planets. You want to be a real person, don't you?
I already have three interested buyers on a few prime spots on Mercury... don't miss your chance!
Oh great there goes a planet! Really somebody needs to start looking out for those small planets, or next thing we know the sun is gonna get too big for it's britches and decide to lower the count to 7. . .

Back from internet limbo, and glad to be here.
That sucks. How would us earth-dwellers like it if some scientists on Pluto decided that earth wasn't good enough to be a planet, because out orbit was too circular, and didn't cross with neptune's?:rolleyes:
Psssh....Besides, who gave these scientists the right to decide what is and isn't a planet? Just because we're the only known (to us) life forms in this galaxy...I bet there are some life forms hiding somewhere on Pluto right now that are very cheesed off
I think it just goes to show that scientists are making judgements on their opinions rather than facts.. & FACTS are what makes science SCIENCE!.. They truely have proved their own incompetence..
Personally i think its a planet.. it doesnt revolve around another planet so its not a moon.. and its too spherical to just be a big rock.. i think it is indeed a planet, just a small one.
Going by their 'logic', some could say that the sun isnt a star, just bcoz its small.. There are stars sooooo huge that ours is merely a dot next to it (literally).. but that doesnt mean our sun isnt a star does it..
As to what someone said about Pluto having the most unusual orbit around the sun. That's because it's the furthest from the sun & therefore the suns gravity has less effect on it.

Ummm... the sun is a star, therefor not really ever in the countOriginally Posted by JORMAGI
