US Astronomers Claim to Discover Tenth Planet in Solar System

I wonder what name they'll come up for the thing.

Quick, let's start an online petition to call it Nemesis.

Move along, no redundant comments to see here

I think I had heard about that a while back. For years scientists had been insistent that there was a 10th planet in this solar system. Now they finally found it. Like the others, they will probably name them after Roman Gods. That is my theory, anyway.

Damn it, two people beat me..

I hope they're Sailor Moon fans, because it needs to be NEMESIS!

But if they call it Nemesis does that mean we get Crystal Tokyo as well?

One theory I heard went like this: Pluto was named after plutonium, the element. That was picked because it came after neptunium. The element after plutonium is americaum, so the new planet should be called America!

Ah, yes, the Pereodic Table of the Elements. I hate that table. I remember looking at some of the names in Science class and thinking "Some of these scientists got pretty lazy when it came to making up names". Seriously, Californium? Where's the Canadium?

Nah, I think we should stick with the Roman gods. Or better yet Greek gods since I always liked their names better.

The story from Wiki:
The name retained for the planet is that of the Roman god Pluto, and it is also intended to evoke the initials of the astronomer Percival Lowell, who predicted that a planet would be found beyond Neptune. The name was first suggested by Venetia Burney, at the time an eleven-year-old girl from Oxford, England. Over the breakfast table, one morning her grandfather, who worked at Oxford University's Bodleian Library, was reading about the discovery of the new planet in the Times newspaper. He asked his grandaughter what she thought would be good name for it. Venetia thought that as it was so cold and so distant it should be named after the Roman God of the underworld. This idea was mentioned by her grandfather to a former Astronomer Royal who cabled his astronomer colleagues in America. After favourable consideration which was almost unanimous, the name Pluto was officially adopted and an announcement made by Slipher on May 1, 1930.

I thought that they already named it nemesis and that was the reason for the SM name. At least I heard that they found something out there they named nemesis. Am I right? I dunno. Someone should check it out.

Okay, I'm not very "up" on astronomy, but are they still having that debate on whether or not Pluto's an actual planet? Because I read that somewhere. Like...in a National Geographic? Or something? But that was a while ago. Anyway, I'll go with everyone else and say Nemesis. Because otherwise, it's gonna have a really complicated name since all the "easy" Greek/Roman names are already taken (Thanks, Jupiter, and your, like, 6 billion moons!). Maybe they should name it after one of the Muses?

You know I've never heard an outcome for that debate, either. For a while they classified Pluto as a moon then said it was a planet again.
And really, why shouldn't we be afraid? In case you haven't heard, life is terminal. Cigarettes will kill you. So will your cellphone. Your car is a deadly weapon and alcohol is a quiet killer. Don't lick the lead-based paint on the walls. Don't lick the back of a postage stamp and certainly don't lick any strangers! That will bring you down quickly indeed. Don't drink the water but don't drink less than eight glasses a day. Your enviroment is toxic, your natural resources are dwindling, your days are numbered, but what ever you do, don't panic! The stress, don't you know, will kill you.

From what I remember, they didn't agree on Puto's status as a planet because of its irregular orbit. In that it crosses the paths of Neptune and maybe Uranus, but at least Neptune. This orbit is more like the path of a commet and such, and the fact it is so small and mostly ice, kind of like a commet adds to the debate.

So that's our new frontier in the future? :o For some reason, "Sailor X" keeps popping into my head. :x

*off topic* The Angel of Death from Raiders of the Lost Ark. You looked at her so now you'll die :P

*On topic* This is a thought that struck me. I was wondering, on the day they announce the new planet's name, how many new Sailor Moon fanfictions do you think will be up that star Sailor [name of new planet]? I can just picture them announcing the name live on T.V. and instantly a couple hundred new fics pop up on google.

I think it's fascinating. It's also logical to name it that way. If not, then at least name it after the person or persons who discovered it. I would hate to see some stupid name for it.
