    Pluto is at Disney world. He got demoted.

    The Solar System, to a first approximation, consists of the Sun, Jupiter, and a few minor details!

    To some of us Pluto will always be a planet, regardless of what the “experts” say.

    I agree with wicky, Pluto will remain a planet. Also,about the rings around Uranus, sounds like a personal problem wicky.

    Pluto IS a planet…a dwarf planet of a specific type. It’s not been demoted to a comet, but it’s not now classified as one of the eight “classical planets”. There are sound reasons for this, not least the fact that there are other objects like it…one at least of which – Eris – is larger. How come no one’s screaming over Eris’ “rights” as a “planet”?

    No solution is going to satisfy everyone, but frankly I think the IAS’ attempt to deal with the way the Solar System really is makes a great deal of sense. And I prefer sense to sentimentality any day of the week.

    P.S.: Dr. Mel’s featurettes are my favorite part of this strip! :)

    Maybe Jupiter will get enough more hydrogen in time to complete the transition and light ’er up.
