Pluto is not a planet. The IAU (in my book) gets to decide what the definition of a planet is because there has to be a definition and they are by far the most qualified body to define it.
Pluto does not meet that definition, and thus should not be considered a planet. I agree with their definition, but even if I didn’t I would submit to it because I am not an expert.
Recently, three people sat in a room and argued about whether pluto was a planet. The audience then voted…and they voted that Pluto was a planet. That, of course, means nothing. If you want random groups of people to define scientific terms…it’s going to be hard to get any actual science done.
I’m just leaving this here, because I like dashing your hopes to the ground.
And, just in case you needed further validation, here’s what Neil deGrasse Tyson had to say on the matter just a couple of weeks ago:
Back to your regularly scheduled…whatever this is.
Been feeling really under the weather lately, fear I’m fighting off a cold. Super tired, sore, and lethargic…fun times. Thinking about Hell is MUCH more enjoyable XD
I REALLY need to stop expanding prompts beyond what they are…I just really wanted to draw hellhound variations.
The number of times I’ve said “fuck you” to inanimate objects today seems to be growing at an exponential rate.
I’ve noticed that katinhats and I never make the list at the same time. >.>
Or…is it that you’re actually the SAME PERSON?!?!?!
