"Much-maligned Pluto doesn't make the grade under the new rules for a planet: "a celestial body that is in orbit around the sun, has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that it assumes a ... nearly round shape, and has cleared the neighborhood around its orbit." Pluto is automatically disqualified because its oblong orbit overlaps with Neptune's."
Doesn't that disqualify Neptune because it's orbit overlaps Pluto? And doesn't Earth get disqualified since it's orbit overlaps the moon's orbit? And does anybody know if Pluto and Neptune are gonna crash into one another someday?
And is somebody gonna tell me "Hey newbie go google for your answers"?
