    "Pluto might become a planet again because astronomers can’t make up their mind"

    Story: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/tech...make-up-their-mind/ar-BBN1wbc?ocid=spartanntp

    "When most of us were brought up in school we learned that there were 9 known planets in the Solar System, and Pluto was the one that hung out on the outskirts. Then, in 2006, everything changed and astronomers from around the world declared that Pluto didn’t meet the criteria for being called a planet."

    "The one sticking point for those who wanted to strip Pluto of its planetary status — the 'clear' orbit requirement — isn’t useful in determining status at all. Instead, the real defining feature of a planet should be whether or not it is massive enough, and creates enough gravitational force, that it becomes spherical. It turns out this is an important milestone in the evolution of a planetary body, because apparently when it happens, it initiates active geology in the body.”

    Conspiracy perpetuated by book publishers so everyone has to re-write everything. Again.

    Pluto should sue for loss of income and emotional distress.

    Great news for the whole 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu program, which in many player's opinion, never quite recovered from the previous Pluto downgrade.

    Wishing the best for everyone involved in this gross injustice.

    This guy did a pretty good job of conveying how I felt when it was announced Pluto was no longer a planet.

    Considering how much the left pushes education, one could logically claim this all as a deep state operation.

    1 Politician Meets with book publishing lobbyists (podests group).

    2. Campaign for extra school funding (Hillary and Obama). Which gives campaign money to political from lobbyist

    3. Bring down the national intelligence average (no child left behind), so no one realizes

    4. Need two new sets of science textbooks within a few years and then the book publishers make returns on the initial investment through lobbying

    Considering a text book is like 70 bucks, and you have like ten million students, that is like 1.4 billion for just two a few minor edits to the same book.

    Thanks Obama.
    Lock her up.

    Pluto is a planet, a dwarf planet. I'm surprised people never protested the use of dwarf. It is only 3/4ths the size of our moon so it is very small. If Pluto is a planet, shouldn't our moon be a planet?

    It's amazing how many people know little about planets yet they care about the label applying to a tiny cold orb at the far end of the Solar System.

    I've never felt like it was a planet. Too small.

    Our Moon orbits around Earth. Pluto orbits around the Sun.
    . Moon radius: 1,079 miles
    . Pluto radius: 738 miles - 248 years to complete one orbit around the sun.
    . Earth radius: 3,959 miles
    . Sun radius: 432,169 miles - that is fucking huge!

    . Ceres: Is the largest object in the asteroid belt that lies between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Its diameter is approximately 587 miles, making it the largest of the minor planets within the orbit of Neptune. It is the 33rd-largest known body in the Solar System and the only dwarf planet within the orbit of Neptune. It is a belt asteroid.

    . Charon: Is the largest of the five known natural satellites of the dwarf planet Pluto. It has a mean radius of 606 km. With half the diameter and one eighth the mass of Pluto, Charon is a very large moon in comparison to its parent body.
