even planets get laid off....



PRAGUE, Czech Republic - Leading astronomers declared Thursday that Pluto is no longer a planet under historic new guidelines that downsize the solar system from nine planets to eight.



After a tumultuous week of clashing over the essence of the cosmos, the International Astronomical Union stripped Pluto of the planetary status it has held since its discovery in 1930. The new definition of what is and isn't a planet fills a centuries-old black hole for scientists who have labored since Copernicus without one.

The Creatures - Pluto Drive



Let's go to Pluto, the atmosphere's clear

We'll be really cool there with nothing to fear

Let's go to Pluto, it's cold and it's damp

Where children are heroes, death is high camp

I want to see Pluto... I want to have fun

I want to turn blue under an alien sun

Oh let me see Pluto, it seems such a gas

With oceans of methane and petrified grass

Let's go to Pluto

Let's live on the dot

See the bad moon rising in a lunacy knot

Come one let's do Pluto

It's really not far

An unleaded dream drive to the prettiest star

I want to see Pluto, but maybe I'll wait

'Til the world turns to meet its plutonium fate

The days will be long here, the years will be more

Let's go to Pluto like we did before

Let's go to Pluto

Let's live on the dot

See the bad moon rising in a lunacy knot.
