According to BBC news...our classification of planets is to change...and it could introduce another 2-3 new planets in our solar system...i know these are not actually NEW..just they are debating changing the classification of what makes a planet.


" The number of planets around the Sun could rise from nine to 12 - with more on the way - if experts approve a radical new vision of our Solar System.
An endorsement by astronomers meeting in Prague would require school and university textbooks to be rewritten.

The proposal recognises eight classical planets, three planets belonging to a new category called "plutons" and the largest asteroid Ceres. "

I like your tag lol

Our knowledge of the universt which includes our own little solar system, is dynamic and subject to change. This discussion on what constitutes a planet is subjective. I will accept whatever the resultss is. After all, we are the top predator on the planet and we are the only one which writes.
