I Still Consider Pluto a Planet

    The devoted lament of demotion.

    Alas, alas. Alas, poor Pluto. Once a mighty planet, Now just cosmic proscuitto. From dessert to after-dinner mint Thanks to astronomer's judo. Barycentric waltzes unpopular, Eris had more mass than you do; So your proud planetary status Is now simply pseudo.

    Dwarf Planet Is Still A Planet

    Pluto has been a planet sense 1930 and still is a planet, just cause you slap 'dwarf' in front of it doesn't make it stop being a planet. It is and always will be a planet and the second ruler of scorpio, I'll teach this to my children and to their children's children.

    It never was much of a planet, really. I don't miss it.

    Scientists that say Pluto is no longer a planet

    can suck it. I'm a Scorpio and Pluto is my planet. You're not taking that away from me. I guess next, Antarctica won't be a continent anymore. You're scientists, not gods. :p

    I laughed when I saw this

    as an experience!! It is still there. And, if it isn't a planet, can it still have a moon? Can you have a moon without a planet? I am so pleased I have nothing more pressing to concern myself with x

    I've always known Pluto

    as a planet, I just don't see why all of the sudden it's not considered a planet. Don't worry Pluto, I got your back ;)

    How Can You Not

    When you are raised thinking something is the way it is,it is hard to find out it is not.I still think of it as a planet and I am sure my kids who are too young to care right now, will someday correct me. :)

    I mean it has a frikin moon orbiting around it

    already, if that doesn't make it a planet, I don't know what will... And I did hear were other "dwarf planets" discovered beyond Pluto that also orbit the sun, but in my view, anything that orbits the sun should be classified as a planet!

    When I was born it was a planet

    so when I die it will be a planet too.I feel so bad about it, being pushed to the side and being forgotten, they say it's not right to do it to people, than why is it okay to do it to planets?

    Some silly college educated fools sat around on

    their brains and they decided to "downgrade" Pluto to a "dwarf planet" or "minor celestial body". Why? Because it's small? Woo hoo big freakin' deal! Perhaps it's because Pluto's orbit is eccentric. It still orbits the sun!!! It's a chunk of rock!!! It's a planet!!! These...

    It is so strange when the most acclaimed and approved scientists worldwide first for centuries "believe" - with significant amount of research - in geocentric system, and later - in heliocentric such.... Then again similar people for centuries truly "believe"...

    You can't just take away the title "planet" .

    I find I am over protective of Pluto on this subject. It's like saying a banana is no longer a fruit it's a seed or something.... Bullsh*t.

    I just took astronomy this past spring

    and i now understand why they downgraded pluto. its really silly. Half of them think it still is a planet and the others think its a dwarf planet. So I think until they all can get on the same page, its still a planet to me.
