So is Pluto a Planet or Not?
Am the only one confused with this whole Pluto debate?
If you're like me, growing up with Pluto as a member of our solar system is a distant memory. Back in 2006, The International Astronomical Union (which is an awesome name for a group by the way), decided Pluto didn't fit the criteria of being a planet. So, it was decided Pluto was simply no longer a planet.
But now, according to CNN, A professor at UCF is challenging this idea. Philip Metzger is the leader of the movement, and does not agree with the rules set for determining planets. He argues that when the decision was made, the rules that were set hadn't been used in a long time.
So once again, we've reached an impasse in the "is Pluto a planet debate." Which side are you on? I'm all for Pluto as a planet!
