Firstly, i know its a really old topic about Pluto not being a planet anymore, but i was thinking about it recently.
Firstly, im aware that pluto along with eris, etc. are considered dwarf planets, so its not like theyre totally lost from our respect. But does
everyone agree with the definition of a planet? I heard soem scientists want Pluto to be a planet, and some other scientists are talking about
demoting Earth. (although im not sure how true that may be) I think, in my own opinion, if it orbits a sun, and has a satellite, its a planet.
Granted, this would erase mercury and venus from the planet chart, but i think with so many different levels of planets, there will be no planets in
the future, all will be a sub division, jupiter? thats not a planet, its a gaseous planetoid. stuff like that.
Anyways, im sure there were posts like this a few years ago, but im just wondering no what everyone else thinks.
