It will be soon taught to students in schools and colleges that our Solar System has eight planets instead of Nine. Leading astronomers has approved new guidelines under which Pluto will be no longer be considered a planet. Pluto was discovered in 1930 and was always unders discussion whether it should have been a planet due to the size and the orbit on which it rotates. The new rule under which any object can be considered to be planet is “a celestial body that is in orbit around the sun, has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that it assumes a nearly round shape, and has cleared the neighbourhood around its orbit.”
Pluto is disqualified because its oblong orbit overlaps with Neptune and thus it will be called or classed as dwarf planets or minor planets. So now our students will be taught that our Solar System has eight planets and not Nine and more. What difference will it make for you, what is your view?
