PLUTO GIVEN THE PINK SLIP


Pictured: An artist's rendering of Pluto.

While disgruntled science teachers and nit-picky astronomers have been debating its status as a planet since the days when I was sporting parachute pants and a puffy Michael Jackson mesh hat from Family Dollar, Pluto was officialy given the pink slip yesterday -- kicked out of the exclusive "Planet Club" and demoted to Dwarf Planet. It's a shame to see it go, but Pluto had a good run, especially amidst the years of debate over its planetary status since being discovered in 1930. Now, the galaxy looks a little different, at least as viewed through the eyes of the International Astronomical Union meeting in Prague this week:

"In the new solar system as defined by the International Astronomical Union, meeting in Prague, there are eight planets instead of nine, at least three dwarf planets and tens of thousands of so-called smaller solar system bodies, like comets and most asteroids."

There is a potential silver lining to all of this Pluto bashing. Perhaps all this spirited debate will next focus attention on the Walt Disney character Pluto, and we'll finally find out why so many Disney characters suck.

I think that PLUTO should have still been included as a planet because it's a DWARF PLANET ,so I say it's still a planet!!!

the defination of a dwarf planet is different from that of a planet

I am the kind of hombre who loves to seek brand-new things. Right now I am building my own solar panels. I'm making it all by myself without the assistance of my men. I am using the net as the only way to acheive this. I stumbled upon a truly amazing site that explains how to make pv panels and so on. The site explains all the steps needed for constructing photovoltaic panels.

I'm not really sure bout how precise the data given there is. If some people over here who have experience with these works can have a see and give your feedback in the page it will be great and I would highly value it, cauze I really enjoy [URL=http://solar-panel-construction.com]solar panel construction[/URL].

Thanks for reading this. U people are the best.
