Pros And Cons Of Pluto

Does Pluto have the characteristics needed to be considered a planet? Throughout this essay, I will explain how things should be classified when it comes to speaking in terms of the universe. Is there criticism that was merited against in such terms, models, or ideas, and does it support the method of us understanding the universe? This conversation is focusing on to what extent the class of the cosmology became successful. Thus, the way that we have to know the universe has been through terms and models which are beneficial because the words are broken down into manageable information.
Terms such as, “big bang” and “universe” are complex and broad, making them inaccessible, whereas the term “planet” is much more simple to understand.

The article, “What’s in a Name?” by Adam Hadhazy, argues the pros and the cons about naming things. As far as the article goes, Hadhazy argues, “For others, the designations fail to inspire. Wladimir Lyra, a planetary scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., says the names are boring and don 't resonate with non-scientist audiences” (Hadhazy 3). The interesting way to name the objects of space is constantly not to address thing in one subject, for example, it can be half scientific and mythological roots of the terms in order to create more interesting ideas. Referring to this article, “Can We Know the Universe?” from Carl Sagan, this article discusses that humans cannot know everything about the world, but we can still understand some of the world. In order to learn thing throughout the world and cosmology, notice that Sagan says, “If you spend any time spinning hypotheses, checking to see whether they make sense, whether they conform to what else we know, thinking of tests you can pose to substantiate or deflate your hypotheses, you will find yourself doing science. And as you come to practice this habit of thought more and more you will get better and better at it” (Sagan 1-2). Similar to creating an experiment, it…show more content…
Speaking of the lecture, “The Literature of Natural History and the Idea of Evolution” by Tom Hothem, tells us that classification is very important due to the change of life because specifying is very difficult to determine definitely what type of animals and plants are, especially if they are going through the generation process. Based on his lecture, Hothem learns that “Carl Linnaeus (1707–1778) developed the modern scientific system of classification, using Latin terms for the species, genus, family, order, class, phylum, and the kingdom of plants and animals, based on observable characteristics” (Hothem 13). The best method of using the terms corresponding to the Evolution is how things from our galaxy are being organized into categories, for instance, Jupiter, Mars, and Saturn belong to the planet category and stars obtain its own organization due the distinctive type of stars. And then going back to another lecture, “Masks of the Cosmos-Cosmologies since the Beginning of Time” by Wil Van Breugel, the main idea for this lecture is about how Cosmos are broadly viewed in a different type of perspective but in a complementary style. Bruegel believes, “Life might exist throughout infinite space and infinite time” (Breugel 15). According to nature, we should understand how new astronomical objects will form and adapt
