"Pluto a planet" poll
Should Pluto be considered a planet?
Just a guess, but I would bet that those voted "Yes" are lay persons and not bona fide astronomers. Such controversy. Simply put...if the astronomers wish to redefine the characteristics of a planet and thus change Pluto's status--that's fine, but for the populace, Pluto can remain a planet.
