      Is Pluto A Planet

      At the time of its discovery in 1930, Pluto was considered the sought-after "Planet X," the ninth planet in the Solar System. It remained that way until 2006 when the International Astronomical Union controversially voted on a new definition for "planet" that moved Pluto to the status of "dwarf planet." The situation ignited the interest and passion of the public, many of whom rallied to Pluto's defense — how could the IAU demote poor, tiny Pluto? But what objects have been considered planets throughout history? Is the IAU's definition a good one? What other objects like Pluto are out there? These questions and more will be discussed, but please...check your nostalgia at the door! General Admission - $0.00
