Where it says that?

And there's other problem in calling it as planet, its orbit differs greatly from all planets.


Oh excuse me for making a typo !
Bigger not Gigger
And as you are correcting my grammer ...
"Where it says that?"
archives.tcm.ie...
science.nasa.gov...

I dont see you rejecting the other planet I informed you of....
Arent we playing semantics here?

here is princetons definition of a planet:
The noun "planet" has 2 senses in WordNet.
www.cogsci.princeton.edu...

1. planet -- (any of the celestial bodies (other than comets or satellites) that revolve around the sun in the solar system)
2. satellite, planet -- (a person who follows or serves another

See I just proved there is 11 planets not 9 !
which is still being taught in schools ! lol

What do you mean? According to the picture, Sedna is at the most 1100 miles in diameter, and it says that Pluto's diameter is 1400 miles.

According to that definition, wouldn't that mean that any Asteroid could be considered a planet, so that instead of 11 planets, there are millions?

There are also some scientists who are starting to say that because of its orbit, size, and composition, Pluto must have been something else in the solar system (such as a moon of Neptune) before it was knocked into orbit around the sun. As a result, they do not count Pluto as a real planet and if asked, will say that the solar system in fact has 8 planets.
