    Pluto loses status as a planet

    [​IMG] Pluto's status has been contested for many years

    Astronomers have voted to strip Pluto of its status as a planet.
    About 2,500 scientists meeting in Prague have adopted historic new guidelines that see the small, distant world demoted to a secondary category.
    The researchers said Pluto failed to dominate its orbit around the Sun in the same way as the other planets.

    There's basically another asteroid belt out around the Pluto region, and Pluto is just one body within that belt. We're going to see a ton of new objects identified out there within the next few years. Pluto isn't even the largest one.
