RE: New Planet at the edge of our Solar System may have been discovered.
This planet may well fail the criteria of what they define a planet as, since it's in the Kuiper belt, it would fail the third criteria for a planet.
  • It needs to be in orbit around the Sun.
  • It needs to have enough gravity to pull itself into a spherical shape
  • It needs to have “cleared the neighborhood” of its orbit

They classified Pluto as a "dwarf" planet, I don't see how they could say this is a "dwarf" planet.

We should name it Darwin, or Hitchens. Or Ayaan.

Five times Earth's mass, yeah, that's not dwarf.

Dear NdT,

I love you dearly and I know you're brilliant in many ways but your shortsightedness on this Pluto issue is more than I can bare. I'm sorry but I feel we should break-up. Pluto has had my heart since childhood. Heart

I must be true to myself.

Best of luck,

But I thought size didn't matter?....anyway, I assume there would be a lot of ice on it, I want to call it Hoth.
