    3 New Planets in our System?

    Advertisement



    It would appear that we may be getting 3 new planets added to the 9 we have been taught about. What are your views and thoughts on this?

    Let's hear'em.

    Dissing Pluto and the Other Plutons
    The astronomical union ought to summon the courage to
    scratch Pluto from the list of planets.

    Well it took them long enough to bring this to light. Hey maybe in another 20 years they'll "Discover" somemore. I think they just brung this up because they needed a new grant or to keep a deparment from closing. LOL.

    This has been an ongoing debate for 10 years that I know of.

    And they even say that Pluto and it's moon act more like a planetary pair than a planet and a moon.

    Plutos moon is one of the new planets that will be added if this is accepted. Along with Ceres and Xena. Charons name will not change.

    True, but is it really a moon of pluto or is that system more of a planetary pair, like a binary star system. I say this because the Center of Rotation is not within the Planatary Sphere of Pluto but between Pluto and Charon.

    Just one of the points of contention that is causing some of the on-going discussions.

    Astronomy is so interesting to me. Why did I ever lose track of it in school? Thanks for bringing this up John.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Good pointe Rc. I haven't heard that pointe brought up yet. But I do know what you are talking about. Wonder how they will solve this.

    There is no ISS, it's a hoax. That's just a big inflatable you see in the sky when it passes over.
