Pluto has always been one of my favorite planets, the underdog planet, the smallest, the furthest from the Sun, it's such a underdog, it was even kicked out of the solar system at one time. Well not really, but it was made not a planet, because of a vote by scientists, who vote on such things. The reason they did this was because of the discovery of the Kuiper belt, which is many more planets around the size of Pluto and, smaller, basically they didn't want to name them and, didn't think school kids could remember them all. I don't know about you, but I would have just left Pluto a planet, considered the other ones the Kuiper belt and, slowly named them. Pluto is at it's closest like 3 billion light years away from Earth and, at it's farthest 5 billion, it takes the planet over 243 years to orbit the sun.

lol I love how you said "kicked out of the solar system." Made it sound so sad like a child being kicked out of a club or something haha. I can't believe I just felt sad for a planet lol I thought I read something recently about Pluto being known again as being in our solar system. Is it or did I just read a load of poop?

That's really cool about Pluto. My favorite planet has always been Mars.

I would have never knew that! I'm out of touch with astronomy. The Pluto I am more familiar with is Mickey Mouse's pet.

I have always remembered Pluto and I did not know they made it not a planet at one time. It is small and cold and lonely. But still, it is a planet.

I have a fascination with the planets for two reasons. 1. I taught about them in school. 2. My son met Carl Sagan at his university.

I wrote an article about Pluto some time ago. I'll have to find it and share it with you. Now scientists are saying that there is another planet the size of earth out there but they REALLY have not seen it. What?

Awesome I have on the old site to awhile ago and, I heard that too, it's really far away though, but does hold interesting possibilities.

I think that there is something fascinating about Pluto. It is so small and so far away from the sun. I never learned much about the solar system at school, but I have read books about the topic as an adult, and I think that it is an interesting topic.

I think it is back to being a planet now, but yes it was silly to change it in the first place.
