The more moons they find the more I'm inclined to agree with the Dwarf Planet description even though I don't agree with it's reasoning.

Personally, I think Pluto should have been left as a recognized planet.

The way thinks are going, I think there are more bodies in this solar system that will qualify as fully fledged planets, probably a dozen more on the outer fringes.

You know, 9 planets is the only number that will ever sound right to me, even when it's no longer right!

I think of Pluto as a full planet aswell but many of it's moons are just hunks of ice. That's another thing I think is unfair abut the description I think it's saying ice planets aren't planets

Dwarf planet is a pretty new term isn't it?

Captain Tom Coughlin 07-12-2012 08:36 PM

Yes, it was coined in 2006

Specially made for Pluto and it's cohorts.

Nice find, thanks for posting

I think it makes sense to separate Pluto from the other planets. He has far more in common with the other stuff beyond Neptune than with the four gas giants.
