The backlash has started. Save Pluto as a planet campaign in full swing!

It's all a bit like the Conference relegation rules...

Gustav Holst must have known Pluto would eventually be devallued, that's why he didn't include it in his Planet Suite! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />




Before the pedantic people answer.....Yes I do know that it wasn't discovered until over twenty years later! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/chat.gif" alt="" />

The ninth planet should now be "sedna" . It is the most distant object on the outer edge of our solar system and unlike pluto its not a member of the kuiper belt . pluto was most likely given planetary status because it has a moon "CHARON" but pluto is in actual fact smaller than our own moon and should never have been given planetary status which was granted in the 1930s.

SEDNA.

Charon was discovered in 1978, long after Pluto was given planetary status. Because perturbations had been discovered in Neptune's orbit in 1905, many people were looking for a missing planet with an orbit outside Neptune's. When Pluto was discovered in 1930, it was therefore thought to be the object of these searches.

By the way, Charon will be crossing in front of Pluto in 2109. So get your telescopes ready.

Sedna, previously known as 2003 VB12, is a dwarf planet, and is smaller than 2003 UB313, which is the largest known dwarf planet in the solar system. It is also smaller than Pluto, 2003 EL61, and 2005 FY9.

Sedna my ar$e! That's a close-up shot of a four-day-old Malteser.

Isn't there a 'planetoid' dubbed Xena in the running as well?

No, she was a 'super girl' and a warrior princess or something - much more scary (or so I'm told) <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Sedna should be recognised as a planet due to the fact its the most distant object of size that orbits our sun. Its all on its own and is not part of any asteroid belt.
