Pluto, a Planet No More

BBC, Pluto loses status as a planet:

Astronomers meeting in the Czech capital have voted to strip Pluto of its status as a planet.

About 2,500 experts were in Prague for the International Astronomical Union's (IAU) general assembly.

Astronomers rejected a proposal that would have retained Pluto as a planet and brought three other objects into the cosmic club.
Spokespeople for Pluto weren't immediately available for comment. :)
