Pluto isn’t a planet anymore

Well, the International Astronomical Union has voted to demote Pluto to a “dwarf planet” instead of being a full planet. I’m not sure whether that’s a good thing, since a lot of changes will have to be made to textbooks, planetarium shows, computer programs, and a host of other things. Space.com has an article covering the event. The response has been mixed on both sides of the issue.
