This might be a bit of inside baseball but NASA has added Pluto to its roster of planets, at least indirectly.
The Register found an image on NASA’s home page showing the tiny “dwarf planet” wending its merry orbit out at the edge of our solar system, oblivious to its demotion to “big space rock.”

Interestingly, Illinois has been very mad about Pluto’s demotion because one of their native sons discovered the rock back in 1930.

Does this mean Pluto is back? Nah, but why not root for the underdog?
