Pluto Gets The Boot

The IAU says so, but astronomers worldwide and Pluto fans are upset. I suppose if you’re upset too, find some internet voting booth and register your displeasure.After last week’s 12-planet proposal, I thought Pluto might get grandfathered in, but apparently not.

Read up on Pluto’s Kansan discoverer, Clyde Tombaugh, if you wish. Dan Falk’s recent article in the February 2006 issue of Astronomy was also excellent.
