Charles, you’re a funny guy :) I wasn’t going to say anything, but I can’t
help myself, I must protest this great injustice to Pluto.
You know, there is just something about Pluto, I love that little guy!
And, I don’t care what the scientists say Pluto is, it will always be a
planet to me. Besides, there are scientists that still call Pluto a
planet, so it is ok.
Yes, what an embarrassment for the scientists this year lol, when it
became known to the general mass of people, that they didn’t really have a
clear idea what a planet was!! Interestingly, that didn’t stop them from
naming planet after planet, till we were told we had 8 other planets
around us. 
I am not sure, but I think in 2009, they will meet again, our brilliant
minds, and then, most likely, we will have a new definition of a planet,
and maybe, just maybe, Pluto will be a planet again ha ha. Actually, there
is practically no doubt they will produce a new definition.
Anyway, on the up side, there is a spaceship on it’s way to the outer
reaches, to visit Pluto and beyond, called ‘New Horizons’.

Mission page - http://pluto.jhuapl.edu/mission/mission_timeline.html
This could be the fastest spacecraft ever, it reaches Jupiter in early 2007, 
it left Earth Jan 19, 2006!

'Small point on your notes. Pluto is not 'no longer a planet', it is no
longer regarded as a planet. It is instead now regarded as never having
been a planet.'

I think I use this example from now on when asked to define 'pedantic'

no this page doesn't have a download link, there is another page for that, but there is a problem with uploading files at this site at the moment, so it hasn't been done, but you can download it at zillions site :)
