Hi guys,

you know that another planet was found  at the outer side of our solar system? It is a little bit larger than pluto and is called xenia

Yep and it has a companion called Gabrelle (the astronomers that named them were fans of Lucy Lawless)--Jan

Hehe,

... i just wonder because i read something about that the astronomes dont acclaim xenia as 10 planet, but if they dont accept the planet than they must do the same with pluto... just crazy

Many astronmers fall into 2 camps. Some will argue that bodies such as pluto and our moon are planets and others will argue against that. In the end it doesnt matter to me what they decide.

TO me they are just objects that orbit our sun...heh. Simple enough!   :D
