Down Pluto, Down Boy, Bad dwarf Planet

Aug 25, 2006

Pluto lost its planetary status. The political organization of scientists known as the International Astronomical Union voted it out of the solar system.

They've come up with a new definition for a good planet and Pluto doesn't make the grade.

The new definition:

"a planet is a celestial body that is in orbit around the sun, has sufficient mass for self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that it assumes a almost round shape, and has cleared the neighborhood around its orbit."


So say goodbye to the 9th planet, and don't forget to update your kids in time for school!
