*bounces* So cool!

It's not absolutely official yet, but astronomers have found an object twice the size of Pluto, beyond our ninth planet. Isn't that cool? The object is made of frozen methane, much like Pluto, and doesn't seem to fit in with the Kuiper Belt that lies outside out solar system. *bounce*

The media has been calling it the tenth planet, but scientists are still arguing over what it is, and what the definition of 'planet' should be. *rolls eyes* If it is a planet, we may have to add two other objects in as planets, too.

*bounces* I'm such a dork, but this makes me so excited. Whee!
who thinks they should name the new planet Yuggoth, but she reads too much Lovecraft, and no one asked her. ^_~
