A Little Fun With Pluto

Had a little fun with the whole Pluto Controversy – in the form of t-shirts of course – “Save Pluto! Persist Against Pernicious Planetary Plutocracy!”

An astonomer I heard being interviewed on the radio the other day made a good point. We have very clear cut definitions for when things are defined as ‘suns’ or ‘comets’ but the dividing line between what a planet is or isn’t, based on size, is really just arbitrary and doesn’t really make that much difference where they’ve drawn, or redrawn the line. Something to think about.
