The IAU decided on a name of a Pluto-sized planetoid orbiting the sun at about 52 AU (astronomical units which 1 AU = distance from sun to earth). This can be seen using a high-end amature telescope near the constillation Coma Berenices. This planetoid is the 3rd biggest in its classification since the IAU decided on a strong classification of plantets and dwarf planets. Its unique due to its high inclination to the ecliptic. Out of the "disk" our planets sit on to revolve around our sun it is the furthest away from the disk than any other planetoid.

By telling you guys all this, it shows just how big of a space dork I am.

I should have became an astrophysist, still could but that would be very difficult to do. I watch The Universe on History Channel and most space and physics things in science channel and discovery.

Science, Discovery, History, and occasionally Sci-fi are the only reasons I still have sattelite tv.

Yup me too, that and when I moved to where I was, the cable company didn't send a line down our road. But you know what I got a good value on HD programming right now so I am happy.

meh not that kind of chemist. I'm following the path of Biochemistry to become a Pharmacologist. I'm going to be making the drugs that are currently dissolving in your stomach.

You can always visit disneyland when you have those feelings! XD


screw that sub-planet

When you got another planetoid thats bigger than it, that no one wants to recognize as a planet, its only fair to become a non-planet. Hell there are some moon's bigger than Pluto.
