Say it ain't so, Pluto. Pluto's status as a planet "could go either way" after a stormy day of debate over a newly proposed planet definition.
North County may play role in Pluto's fate (http://news.google.com/news/url?sa=T&ct=us/0-1&fd=R&url=http://www.nctimes.com/articles/2006/08/23/news/top_stories/11_02_548_21_06.txt&cid=1108696130&ei=QIDsRLzqNLiYHKKG_b0F) North County Times

yea this is last weeks news, a little late dont ya think?

they dont even know how many planets there are in the solar system, 10 years ago they thought there was a planet behind pluto, turned out to be its moon, if they were to look the average distance between planets behind pluto, guaranteed theres another planet.

heh, for the people who dont believe in aliens, think of it this way, every star out there, there is planets rotating around, what seems more far fetched? theres aliens by a different star or were the only life forms in the universe.

It's not a planet according to New York... it was removed from the list.

Well, not every star... actually most don't. But your point still remains, and I agree.
