Finally some sanity! :coolspecs:

Pluto should be reclassified as a planet, experts say
Science Daily

Abstract: The reason Pluto lost its planet status is not valid, according to new research from the University of Central Florida in Orlando.

:Yippeee:

That's funny.

I hate to get pedantic in nitpicking a joke, but I don't think NASA had anything to do with it, for the record. It was the International Astronomical Union, which is as its name suggests, an international body of professional astronomers, not a division of NASA. People just think that NASA is in charge of anything space-related.

So it should read "Dear IAU, your mom thought I was big enough. Love, Pluto."
