Solar System 2.0 Redux
Well Pluto got kicked out of the planet club today. It’s now a “dwarf planet.” Don’t they mean “little planet” or “sized-challenged planet”? The insensitivity of it all! Well, I will be sad to see Pluto go, and it will be really difficult to explain it to my 4-year-old. These scientists! They’re all about “a triumph of science over sentimentality” but do they have to deal with the emotional fall-out when you turn a toddler’s world upside down? I don’t think so.
