We just discovered our 10th planet, Xena, has a moon

http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wireStory?id=1177384

i thought it was cool. maybe someone will look back on our generation and think we are totally lame for this discovery just how we think the world is round is a lame discovery and/or earth not being the center of the universe.

actually pluto is not technically a planet, rather a meteor

Re: We just discovered our 10th planet, Xena, has a moon

yeah, but who has the right to categorize stuff as a planet? we could just say earth is the only planet because its just a word and a title. but the fact that there is a hunk of somethingness out there orbiting around the sun is whats important and whether we categorize xena and pluto as a planet or not has no impact on anything. the only difference it would make is it would make elementary science tests on planets a bit harder.

google the strict definition of what a planet it, it may help to understand why they say things are/are not

Re: We just discovered our 10th planet, Xena, has a moon

another theory about Pluto is that it was a moon of Neptune, and was knocked out of orbit.... take what you will... this new 'planet' was probably just a very large meteor cruising by. The Astroid Belt could've easily been a planet, had it stuck together, but it didn't... it clumped, but then spread out... I'm not sure why.
