I Still Consider Pluto a Planet

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,583 People

    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.

    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!

    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's still there

    even though it's all ice now. It's not like it was blown up by an asteroid.

    I Dont Get It-

    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...

    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.

    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 ;)

    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...

    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

    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.

    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.

    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?

    PLUTO Is a Planet!

    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"...

    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
