However there is more information to be taken into account.
First of all, how many of you remember looking at the planets while still in primary school? (for international readers primary school starts at the age 5 and goes till around the age ten)
you learnt the order of the planets, and got to make cut out hanging models to hang from a coat hanger, coloring each of the planets in...
however, depending on the outcome of the debate this could become a class task.
it could be difficult enough for anyone to remember all the planets, let alone young school children,
depending on the outcome of the IAD meeting, we could be looking at
23,39 or 53 New Planets!!!!
I think that is just incredible!!
some more facts about pluto:
- The surface temperature of Pluto is estimated to be around 45 Kelvin, in normal terms thats -235c
- From February 7th 1979 until February 11 1999 Pluto was the 8th planet in the solar system
- the diameter is 2,280 Kilometers
- Pluto is the only planet in the solar system that we havent ""Probed""
