According to a report on the CTV website, “After a turbulent week of spirited debate that bitterly divided astronomers, experts at the International Astronomical Union (IAU) convention in the Czech capital of Prague voted on historic new guidelines that set out the universal definition of a planet. Under the new galactic guidelines, the much-maligned Pluto was stripped of its planetary status.” The solar system has just been downsized, leaving only eight official planets orbiting our sun. Pluto’s been reclassified a dwarf planet. Well, we could’ve told you Pluto wasn’t a planet. Why were astronomers involved in the debate anyway? Didn’t anyone consult a vet?
