There are three new planet's and possibly more on the way. It's going to be wierd when I have kids and to here about all the new planets they're learning heres a link to one of the articleshttp://blogs.chron.com/sciguy/archives/2006/08/post_3.html

wow awsome

i still cant move there.

why are people so interested in far distance planets? it makes absolutely no sense except for, A) theres water B) Oxygen C)Water and Oxygen D) a face shaped crater, OOHH THAT MEANS THERES ALIEN LIFEFORMS

i really hate space.

ps. why did they add numbers to them, and why goofy ass names
the only ones i can pronounce is:
Varuna, Vesta, Pallas, Sedna, and Orcus

and again why did they add numbers?

I want to live on the flat planet 2003 EL. That way I could tunnel through it and have a paintball field on the other side.

youll have a better chance living on hygeia

what sucks now is stars can be qualified as planets, if it has gravitational pull, is 1/1000 of earth, or its 500 miles in diameter

The article stated that the it has to orbit a star, but not be a star itself. So no planets can be stars, unless I read it wrong.

why not build a planet free of earthbound disasters... and maybe give it a giant laser or device that eliminates life from all stretches of the universe... that seems to be what everyone else is doing.

These are not planets at all, guys... these are called planetoids. They are tiny planets, nothing more. They have known of them for a while now, and are just getting around to naming them. Another name, a misnomer, for them is "plutoids" as they are smaller than Pluto. Don't get all excited over these pebbles in the space-time continuum. :rolleyes:
