Apparently NASA has discovered a new planet past Pluto. We’re talking way past Pluto – it’s 9 billion miles away from the sun. Check it out.
Of course the first thing I thought was, “Does it have a Club Med yet?”
I really do find this fascinating. There was a time in grammar school when we all had to pick planets to write about for a presentation on the solar system (go figure). I had just read about Charon and was under the impression that it was a planet, not a moon. Unfortunately there was next-to-no information out there about this planet/moon/thing, so I had to change over to a planet that was already taken by another student. I think I chose Neptune, probably the most boring planet there is.
I just hope there isn’t a kid who writes a paper on this new planet to find out that it, too, was just a moon.
