Planetary News: The Big Boot

And then there were system dioramas all around the world are not out of date and incorrect.

The people who control what is and isn't a planet have spoken, and they decided that Pluto is no longer worthy of the Planet status.

First things first, I didn't even know there were people who were in charge of this.

Second, wow...that changes everything and yet nothing at the same time. There are now only eight planets, but is anyone really effected?

Third, I guess there is going to be some new subplanet type thing/classification that Pluto is going to fit into, along with some other stuff floating around out there just waiting to SLAM into Earth and end it all.

It's been an exciting day in astronomy...I mean, to astronomers, this is like winning the Super Bowl huge.
