    BBC News - Hubble spies fourth moon at Pluto

    [​IMG]

    "It becomes the fourth object known to be circling the distant world after the long-recognised Charon and recently observed Nix and Hydra satellites."

    OK?

    But Earth's Moon, which was supposedly the end result of a Mars size planet crashing into Earth (don't laugh) is our one and only Moon. There is no orbiting debris, no other small moons as a result of this titanic impact (stop laughing, this is serious, this is the best explanation as to how Earth has a Moon as large as it does) just one really big Moon way too large to have been captured by our gravity, shows the same face to us all the time and just so happens to be the only Moon in the solar system the exact apparent size as the Sun.

    I was never in favor of Pluto's demotion.

    Just because it's small and way the fuck out there and takes a couple of hundred years to orbit the sun.

    Sounds discriminatory.

    And I don't give a shit what they say, Pluto will always be a planet in good standing to me.

    We gave my Dad a Sweatshirt that said something like "Back in my day Pluto was a planet"

    Sure Frank. And you state that it is hollow. With Gray's manning the controls, correct? Or was that Sasquatchs?

    Well, it was either that or make other recently discovered Kuiper Belt bodies that are larger than Pluto, planets. Since Pluto and those other bodies were distinctly different and much smaller than the rocky and gaseous planets, a new designation was created.

    I solidly agree with you on pluto. This debate is going to restart again in the future as we could find other planets larger then pluto out there. What is a dwarf and what is a planet? Pluto was a planet for 70 years and would of put any debate to sleep forever as we could say that if the spherical world was smaller then pluto=dwarf and if it was bigger=planet. I guess the idiots went to bitch and whine again in the future.:eek::eek:
