I mean, honestly, I was reared on the fact that there were nine planets in our solar system: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, (Asteroid Belt), Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, AND PLUTO!
I have been watching that, as I am something of a very amateur astronomer. They could just have easily said there are ten planets because Pluto is really a twin planet with Charon (which is about half its size).
I guess its earier to demote than promote.
Honestly, Ryan, I've never cared what a bunch of European astronomers thought, and I don't plan to start now. I suggest you hold the line.
I am thinking of calling the international astronmical union and applying for alternative planetary oversight.
