That is true. But there's been a lot of confusion about which is larger because they have a similar diameter, mass, and density.

would be interesting to know how you created the textures. Did you paint them yourself --> wow! Were they taken from Nasa, okay...

pluto is not considered a planet anymore. its too small and has a elliptical orbit like a comet. I wanted to make our solar model as we know it today. i probably will make some other sheets with some random planets and comets illustrated where i will put pluto.

pluto is so small i think you wouldnt even see it on this scale.

and why noone is missing IO and europa, 2 of the big moons from the 62 moons that orbit jupiter which actually should have made it in the scale. :)

Size matters not.

Also, All of our planets do NOT have a perfectly circular orbit either. Any unigon (one-side polygon) that doesn't have a flat-rate change in tangent line slope is by definition an ellipse.

Pluto is still a planet. :iconwtfusayplz:

yes, you are right with the orbit. but those eccentricity (not sure if its correct word in english) is so small that you dont notice this with your eye while you can notice it on pluto. second thing is pluto is smaller then our moon. its really small.

I understand you like pluto but you know there are other objects (Ceres, Charon and Eris) which then would be planets too. and there have to be more out there.

I think we had to make a definition and put pluto in a new category called the zwergplaneten. which i dont know the english word. but i think its really the best option to open up a category for the small planets. otherwise we could end up in a big mess since there is so much stuff out there we have not discovered yet.

I'm sure if you read up on this in more detail you will agree and be glad to put pluto into those zwergplanets category where it will has a very dominant place :)

They're called Dwarf Planets. Just like Dwarf Stars.

Yeah, Pluto as a Dwarf Planet is the second smallest in Sol, bested only by Eris (currently).

Really, really old conversation here, but... Pluto's 'considered' a planet again! :) Never left
in my mind. <3

Yeah, and as it turns out the decision to not make it a planet was just a bunch of people pushing their names into ballots, basically.

Yeah, I'd heard that. Isn't that how it got re-instated as well?
haha What I don't understand is if that's what they did to begin
with, and people were so 100% to make it a planet again this
time, why was it that the first one voted 'not planet'?
