Who knew when I erased Pluto from the walls of my office, that I was erasing it as a planet from our solar system! A leading Astronomer from the Czech Republic held a press release today to announce that Pluto is no longer considered one of the planets of our solar system. It has been re-classified as a Dwarf Planet.
I guess we can throw out all those old text books now. Can we get along now as an 8 planet solar system? What will become of the other supposed new planet discoveries? Will they fall in the dwarf category? Or will they help make up for the loss of Pluto?
