I thought it was about Mickey Mouse's Pluto, but still, Pluto's planet state was controversial anyway...

Boohoohoo

Come on, it was either this, or our system having 100s more planets, seeing as there were phenomenal numbers of celestial objects with the same size and behaviour as Pluto close to it.

Actually I never liked Pluto. Anything past Mars really doesn't interest me.

True but sometimes rules are meant to be broken, and I for one will be sad to see it dissapear off my daughters school books in the future.

What difference does it make? Nothing changes save the name we give it.

The difference is it will disappear from the Science classes, in 20-30 years children will not know it is up there.

Sure no great shakes but I will miss seeing it in encyclopedias and the like as my children and grandchildren grow up, it maybe just sentimental but it will always be a planet to me.

Now this I find a little odd. Sure, it's no longer a planet, but that doesn't mean all the tons of paperwork with research about it will be burned.

It's now the most heavily researched piece of floating space debris around, and it will definitely be discussed, just in a different context.

No knowledge is lost here, it's just put into a different perspective.

Sure if your into astronomy as a kid you will find out everything you can and it will all be easily accessible, But I am talking about the casual observer that just comes across it in a book.

I have several encyclopedias that have wonderful illustrations of the planets stretching out from the Sun, from now on they will all change in future books and a little piece of distant magic will disappear from our lives.

Pluto was always spoken of as the edge of the solar system, now the edge gets a little closer that's all.

It's more about the magic of old science fiction than pure science fact, sure the things still there and we can look it up on google, but we lose the fun stuff, like Flash Gordon and the thing from Pluto.

I guess you had to grow up in earlier times to understand this, but before Star Wars, and Star Trek our universe stopped at Pluto

Oh no! Not Pluto! It's my 5th favorite planet! Well at least they're keeping Mercury. I can live with that.

You'll always be a planet to me, Pluto! I love you!

I totally get the sentimentality towards Pluto, and I'm only 20. I'm going to continue referring to it as a planet *purely* to piss people off I think. Well actually, it'll be an intelligence test I suppose. Anyone who cares enough to lambast me for referring to it as a planet is just plain fuckin' stoopid.

Pluto is now a 'dwarf planet', along with Ceres and Xena.
