A Part of Our Universe Died on this Day in 2006 – Pluto Isn’t a Planet [POLL]
It was back on this day in 2006 that everything we had been taught about the planets was wrong. It was back on this day that, My Very Educated Mother Just Served us Nine Pizzas would not longer help us to remember the order of the planets. It was back on this day that anyone born after 2001 would not know that Pluto was once a planet because scientists said it wasn’t.
It is heartbreaking that the International Astronomical Union determined Pluto is just a dwarf planet. Not a real planet.
When I was picking Ethan up from day care yesterday they had pictures of the planets on the wall with Pluto on the side and a sign that said “Save Pluto”.
It was the day that a part of our universe died.
