I Still Consider Pluto a Planet

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,468 People

    One day Last year when i was bored i went

    through the earth science text book and crossed out all the times it said eight planets and wrote nine and i would edit whatever else there was that disqualified pluto as a planet, it really isnt fair, thats like telling someone that they won the lottery and letting them believe...

    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

    Dear pluto. What they did to you was just

    really cruel. I still love you and salute you as our last planet in solar system. Sincerely, Matt

    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.

    What Do You Mean It's Not?

    I've grown up writing tests, drawig diagrams, even building models with Pluto firmly in the planets of the Solar System. Call me a rebel, call me old-fashioned, but no matter what those scientists say Pluto will always be a planet to me.

    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.

    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 ;)

    It Is a Planet!

    Who says Pluto is a planetoid or a planetlet? Probably a bunch of rocket scientist brain surgeons that have trouble finding their car keys. Now we've or rather they've found some new planets. Hay, bring back this one then you can have more. Till then why don't you take a long...

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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 woke up one day and people said Pluto wasn't a planet anymore.  I don't really understand- mass or whatever you cant just teach us that something is one thing forever and then decide on a whim that it is something else... jerks!! *LOL* i have a fondness for Pluto it...

    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"...

    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 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!
