Pluto isn't really a planet, so the number is actually 8.


You certainly know how to get right to the heart of the matter.

That was just a joke.

Pluto was defined as a planet between 1930 (discovery) and 2006 when we discovered object heavier and further away from the Sun. By consensus Pluto in now a dwarf-planet, so the number of Solar-planets is agreed upon as eight.

If a premises is no longer true, how about the arguments?


Now they are saying there should be more planets based on the current criteria.

As kennethamy pointed out, that's not relevant to the matter at hand, but also, it's incorrect (which is also not relevant to the thread's subject, but if we're nitpicking, let's at least nitpick properly Smile).


Actually, the link you provide is to a comment on one of the proposed definitions of "planet" before the 2006 decision that established a different definition.

So, no new definition any time soon.
