Pluto has been a planet since 1930. It once was in our solar system but in 2006 they decided that it wasn’t a planet anymore because it didn’t mean all the expectations. According to Discovery Education, a chihuahua is still a dog. This evidence works for Pluto because it is a very small planet but it is still a planet. Also, Jupiter is very big but it is still a planet. One of the reasons Pluto isn’t a planet is because of its size. If Pluto isn’t a planet then Jupiter shouldn’t be a planet. This proves that planets shouldn’t be based on a size. Based on my logic, Pluto orbits the sun. If it wasn’t a planet it wouldn’t orbit the sun because all the other planets orbit the sun and Pluto does. That proves that Pluto should be a planet. According

The young astronomer earned a permanent place in the history of science when he discovered the planet Pluto on February 18, 1930. Pluto orbit lies 3 billion miles from the sun; it takes Pluto two and a half earthly centuries to complete a single orbit around the sun. Seen from Pluto, the sun appears merely as one bright star among many. Pluto 's moon, Charon, is nearly half the size of the planet itself and orbits Pluto once in every 6.4 Earth days. From Pluto, Charon appears eight times larger than our moon appears from the Earth.
He did not have much time to make the most rational decision, he had to immediately decide whether to potentially injure five people or just one person, although neither are a circumstance anyone would want to be a part of and even though Pluto did end up killing one person, the decision he made most likely saved the lives of the children because he possibly could have killed the children if his car had crashed head on with the them rather than returning onto the road and only causing
The discovery of Uranus was a pretty big achievement for the astronomical world. It showed many that there was the possibility of many other planets existing in our solar system past Saturn. There wasn’t really that much thought put into identifying other planets past Saturn since almost everyone did not think that there would be planets out there. This all changed after William Herschel’s discovery in 1781. While it does mark an important achievement for the astronomical world, I do not think that he was really intending on finding a new planet, since it was generally accepted that there were not more for the past 2,000 years.
Galileo heard about a telescope being made and tried it out himself. He created his own telescope and pointed it out into space. There he found that there were four small moons circling around Jupiter, while Jupiter went around the sun (Voelker 17). Since Jupiter revolved around the sun, that meant other planets had to also. “The fact that the moons revolved in the plane of Jupiter rotations implied that the moons were being swept around by a planet-moving force coming from Jupiter” (Voelker 71).
Pluto, should once again be considered as a planet once again. First of all, Pluto fits two of the three requirements to be considered a planet. The currently considered dwarf planet has what Earth and most planets have such as moons,rocks,and ice and isn’t that small. The blue dot is also largely undiscovered celestial body and there is a long journey ahead. Another reason is that the head of NASA said that he considered Pluto, the blue dot as a planet.
Pluto should not be considered a planet. First, According to MissionScience.nasa.gov, for Pluto to be a planet it needs all three of the new criterias. It needs to orbit the sun, needs to be round, and it needs to clear its path and neighborhood around it. Since Pluto only meets two of the three expectations to be a planet, It should not be considered one. It does orbit the sun, it does have enough gravity to make it have a round shape, but it doesn’t clear its neighborhood around it.
Even when the narrator was drunk and addicted to alcohol, he tries his best not to mistreat Pluto. It seems the reason why he does this is because of the way Pluto treats him. The storyteller is finally able to have company from an animal who cares and adores about him.
Humans’ Responsibility in Luna’s Fate At first glimpse, this question nearly whelmed me into imagining that humans were absolutely responsible for the fate of Luna. This is contended from the perspective of the popular notion that humans lack a sense of environmental responsibility in the contemporary world. Nonetheless, after reading and rereading Groc’s essay, I now believe that humans were not entirely responsible for Luna’s fate. Specifically, while humans partway contributed to Luna’s fate due to their individual and collective actions, Luna contributed to the remaining percentage of what led to his tragic demise.
This does not only prove my point further but it also should scare anyone to know that they could die from an illegal alien. Last but not least, is that if the aliens were allowed into America, the government would have to pay millions of dollars for their transition. The aliens are like blood sucking parasites, the blood being our money. Since hundreds and hundreds of the illegal immigration would pass into the U.S, we would be forced to let them not pay taxes. And their health and education, we would have to pay for that as well.
Hook: Pluto is the only dwarf and farthest planet we know in our solar system. Because Pluto is so small, scientist argue on whether or not it should be a planet. What makes Pluto, so special is the size of it and what’s known as a ‘Dwarf Planet’. Pluto was created by pieces around it just like all the other Dwarf Planets as well. I believe that Pluto should be categorized as a planet.
Today virtually every child grows up learning that the Earth orbits the Sun, but four centuries ago the heliocentric solar system, where the Earth orbits the Sun, was so controversial that the Catholic Church classified it as a crime of heresy (UCLA). In the age of early philosophy, Socrates’ is well known. Between the Socratic method and his line of successful students, Socrates’ makes the history books. Galileo Galilei turned astronomers on their heads when he discovered moons around Jupiter. Giordano Bruno didn’t back down from any of his brilliant and different ideas.
Observations by New Horizons show that Pluto is two thousand three hundred and seventy kilometers (one thousand four hundred and seventy-three miles) in diameter, about eighty kilometers wider than previous estimations indicated (Pluto 2015). Solidifying Pluto’s place as the largest Kuiper Belt object, this more accurate measurement of Pluto’s dimensions also led scientists to believe that Pluto consists of less rock and more ice than previously believed. Observing the high resolution images captured by LORRI, scientists noticed that Pluto’s surface was much smoother and
In the 19th century, the definition changed to distinguish only “large” bodies orbiting around the sun as planets. After the classification of Pluto being a planet, the definition of a planet soon changed again. Now, a body must be have a relatively round shape, not be a moon, and must not have completely cleared the area around its orbit. I think that the changing definition of a planet since the 16th century, shows scientific accuracy, as scientists work with the most advanced technology to further understand what we know. These changes show that scientists do make mistakes sometimes and that they do need to alter their information to correct such mistakes.
