- International Astronomical Union
On Thursday August 24, scientists voted. They agreed that Pluto is no longer a planet, because it does not meet the criteria of all of their new laws. Law#3 states: "The planet has cleared the space around it's orbit."
Pluto was demoted, to a minor, or "Dwarf" planet. Now there are only eight planets in our Solar System.
Textbooks, diagrams, and teaching procedures will be changed, and our Solar System will be altered. This petition is for reinstating Pluto as a planet, and "saving" our Solar System.
We the people, call on the International Astronomical Union to reinstate Pluto as a planet.
Law #3 will make an exception, and Pluto will be promoted to full planet.
The Reinstate Pluto as a Planet petition to International Astronomical Union was written by Sadie and is in the category Science & Technology at GoPetition.
