    As discovery broadens the nomenclature matures, taking into account the
    diversity found with discovery. This happened with stars, galaxies, atoms,
    and so forth. So it will happen with planets, as we discover their wide
    variety the previous broad definitions will fine tune to account for these
    widening observations.

    It’s human nature to keep what was once comfortable but, as the new
    generation enters the flow, these new definitions will become increasingly
    acceptable, as they should if science wishes to keep its exactitude.

    I feel that scientists should be able to change more quickly as that is the
    nature of science, with each new discovery, but apparently, that isn’t
    always the case.?

    So whose views do we accept–424 IAU members, most of whom never studied
    Pluto or planetary science, OR the scientists coordinating an actual
    spacecraft rendezvous with Pluto using seven instruments to obtain accurate
    data? Hint: Reality in science is determined by data, not be decree.?

    Can’t wait to see the real thing. Great video.?

    A planet by any other name …?

  • Dan Balkwill Says:

    Neptune’s orbit seems to cross the inner limit of the Kuiper belt from this
    vid. So, if Neptune has not “cleared it’s orbit” exactly the same way that
    Pluto hasn’t – is Neptune next on the”dwarf planet” targeting??
