YOU’RE TELLING ME THE SUN, A G-TYPE MAIN SEQUENCE STAR, QUALIFIES AS A PLANET

AND PLUTO DOESN’T

OKAY LET’S SEE THE THREE IAU CRITERIA FOR A PLANET

  1. IT IS IN ORBIT AROUND THE SUN. IS THE SUN IN ORBIT AROUND THE SUN? DIDN’T THINK SO.
  2. IT ASSUMES HYDROSTATIC EQUILIBRIUM -basically a round shape. Okay. Got me there. One point to the sun.
  3. IT ”CLEARS THE NEIGHBOURHOOD” AROUND ITS ORBIT. THAT MEANS IT GRAVITATIONALLY INTERACTS WITH SMALLER BODIES NEARBY. DOES THE SUN INTERACT WITH SMALLER BODIES NEARBY? NO. KNOW WHY? BECAUSE IT IS THE FREAKING SUN. ANYTHING CLOSE TO IT GETS INCINERATED.

SO THERE YOU HAVE IT FRIENDS. SUN GETS 1 OUT OF 3. WHILE PLUTO SIMPLY LOSES OUT IN THE THIRD CRITERION, BECAUSE IT SHARES ITS ORBITAL ”NEIGHBOURHOOD” WITH KUIPER BELT OBJECTS. PLUTO: 2 OUT OF 3.

AND YET SOMEHOW IN THE POSTER ABOVE, THE BLOODY FUCKING SUN IS A PLANET AND PLUTO IS NOT.
