Pluto and Eris should be planets.
And even if Pluto isn't because it's barycenter is above the surface, Eris has no such problem nor does Sedna
I'm just wondering. The reason why I ask is because I am a science tutor and I notice many of the kids don't know the order of the solar system planets by heart....
Gotta teach them the mnemonic.
All I know is the moon is made of cheese.Sorry your outdated.

It was determined to actually be a giant egg.
Yep, played a lot of Where in Space Is Carmen Sandiego? as a kid. Used to be able to name most of the (at the time) named moons of the planets as well, but that knowledge has long since been wiped from my brain.
Gotta teach them the mnemonic.My very educated mother just served us nachos.
It's like in school being made to memorise the periodic table like it isn't literally a lookup table.
It's such an irrelevant thing, I don't know why you'd care to memorise it.Because planets are interesting
i don't really see how being a dwarf planet makes pluto not a planet. it's even still in the name. figure it's kinda like how the gas giants are still planets but they're obviously different. it's still a planet, it's just small. i'm not against the extra classification, but some of the logic involved with it seems off.Pluto orbits Charon and together they orbit the sun. That's the only part of the definition of a plant that kind of makes sense and why Pluto doesn't count anymore. But Eris is even bigger than Pluto. It should be a planet and Pluto should be the same as Ceres.
