Pluto officially not a planet anymore

Posted on Thursday, August 24 2006 @ 16:25:42 CEST by


Many textbooks will need to be replaced as 2,500 experts for the International Astronomical Union(s (IAU) general assembly have decided that Pluto will lose its status as a planet.
Astronomers rejected a proposal that would have retained Pluto as a planet and brought three other objects into the cosmic club.

Pluto has been considered a planet since its discovery in 1930 by the American Clyde Tombaugh.

The vote effectively means the ninth planet will now be airbrushed out of school and university textbooks.
