As most of you know I only post when science is involved, and I bring news.

It was announced today that there are now 12 planets in our solar system. They now go in this order. Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Ceres, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Chiron, Xena. This leads me to believe that the definition of planet has finally been agreed upon, being that it must orbit the sun, be massive enough to be round and can be in the kuiper belt and still be a planet. Guess this means Pluto and Chiron are a binary system now.

Heres the full article. http://www.boston.com/news/science/articles/2006/08/16/nine_no_longer_panel_declares_12_planets/
