    Cool.Just goes to show if you look in your own backyard,you'll never know what you find.Hopefully in the coming weeks/months they'll release more information on the planet besides its bigger than Pluto and farthest away.

    There was some controversy about whether Pluto should be considered a planet. The family of the discoverer was upset that his contribution to the field was being marginalized if Pluto was no longer thought a planet. But who really cares about those far off planets anyway? I think we should keep any eye on the planets closer to home - I saw a documentary on Cartoon Network about these Martians that have Alludium q-36 Explosive Space Modulators. Frightening stuff!

    Ok, I know it would never happen (unless I discovered it) but a guy can dream, can't he?

    I love this kind of stuff. I just wish we as humans would spend more time and money exploring the mysteries of the galaxy.

    I do seem to remember hearing about a simliar discovery some time ago and this planet was originally discovered in 2003 so maybe they're one in the same.

    They have found plenty of "planets" in the solar system that are the size of Pluto. As has been stated above many people want to take Plutos planet status away due to its small size. Most of these are located in Kuiper Belt and are just abnormally large asteriods. They should just keep the Solar System as is and classify these ones as asteriods and not create any new planets because theres really no point in doing so.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    There's a line in this NASA article that says "Brown, Trujillo and Rabinowitz first photographed the new planet with the 48-inch Samuel Oschin Telescope on October 31, 2003. However, the object was so far away that its motion was not detected until they reanalyzed the data in January of this year. In the last seven months, the scientists have been studying the planet to better estimate its size and its motions." So the one you refer to is likely the same one that we're talking about here.


    Ji'dai, we shouldn't worry too much, the government already has sent an elite team on its way to battle the Martian menace on Planet X, the only known repository of Illudium Phosdex, the shaving cream atom.


    By the way, with a thread title like this, I thought it was going to be another "yo momma" thread.

    Hey man, I don't resort to talking about people's mommas on the net. I will save that for real life.

    And I don't care what they name this new planet...I am still calling it Krypton.
    Let's hope this one does not explode
