Six Years Ago Today, Pluto Was Demoted [Aug. 24th, 2012|02:51 pm]
Those of us at the Society for the Preservation of Pluto as a Planet (or SP3) are still committed to the idea that Pluto's status ought to be re-evaluated, and that Pluto should once again be referred to as a planet, and not a dwarf planet.

If you visit our website, you'll see that we continue to support scientific arguments in favor of Pluto; we also still feel that Pluto has the right to be grandfathered in for sentimental reasons. But there's another discussion we've come across that we feel bolsters our argument.

Whether or not Pluto gets reinstated, we're still very excited that the New Horizons mission will reach Pluto now in only three years. What wonders will we discover? We can only imagine.

I was at the Hayden Planetarium this week, and found that the label explains why Pluto was left out of their solar system had been covered up with a less empathic explanation of the debate. I was glad to see that since, as cool as Neil DeGrasse Tyson is, his unilateral decision to leave Pluto out years before the AAS debate always bothered me. Nice to see he accepts there is a debate, at least.
