Adios Pluto

Scientists in Prague just determined that Pluto is no longer a planet. They didn't say what it actually is, but it is no longer a planet. For years, kids have been learning about Pluto--the 9th and smallest planet. Now, just like that, all science books are outdated. All of the ways to remember the planets like "My Very Elderly Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas" need to be changed.

BUT they've found 2 planets out of our solar system.

And pluto hasn't been a planet technically for a while now ... maybe they're just now proving it, but lots of recent science textbooks leave the little guy out. Sad.
