New data reveals naming error

Stunningly sharp photos of the icy dwarf indicate that we may have erred, not only when we classified Pluto as a planet, but when we named it.


Difficult as it may be to accept, this is the way science progresses. New facts create new propositions, pushing older conventions aside. Good bye Pluto, hello Snoopy. Clearly a much better fit than the old idea.
