I don't care. I still consider it as a planet. Just like how I always believed the brontosaurus was a real dinosaur.

Meh, it's just some space object to me. A space object is a space object. A rock is a rock. Doesn't matter if it's a pebble or a boulder.

Holding on to Pluto being a planet is like holding on to imperial measurements. It just doesn't make sense anymore and we need to move on.

Are you going to live on another planet any time soon?
Has this done anything to benefit me?
No.

Sending some sort of science project into space hasn't helped.
Gazing at other planets instead of our own.
Some people are too existential for their own good;
So much so, they forget they have a life and they don't live it.

Sorry, but i'd rather have money spent on something that can possibly help my mum's schizophrenia.


Sorry to hear about your mum but that's not how life works sorry. My mother also had a lot
of medical problems but I never looked at things the way you do. Even though its for her
your view is selfish.

I'm not selfish.
I'm pessimistic.

Don't tell me how life works.
We're all different.

Getting a better understanding of our celestial backyard is not "something useless", especially when it comes time for us to eventually have to leave this particular blue ball of dirt we currently call home, because we screwed it up to the point that it was beyond capable of sustaining human life. If anything more money should be going into this kind of stuff, rather than finding the latest way to turn another human into a puddle of red goo.

It's not just that. Researching for this stuff has fallbacks into other areas too. For example NASA might develop a new material for space that then turns out to be useful to build prosthetics, or new computers are built and then used for other purposes, including research that concerns people's health. It's all a pretty tightly woven network in reality. And while I do agree that not all research can be of the same level of practical applicability/usefulness to everyone, the US still spend approximately 100x as much money blowing shit and people up overseas, so more power to space probes. Even if it didn't do any good, at least it's money that won't do harm either.

(and consider that sadly with research while money helps it isn't the be-all-end-all. Sometimes it simply takes time to have enough people trained to the point that they will be able to give a significant contribution. Said people must also spend some energies training more people rather than researching or they'll be the end of the line, and so on)

For what it's worth -
With a diameter of only 1473 miles, Pluto would barely make a decent moon for the Earth... the US state of Alaska could cover it !!

Its magnificent an accomplishment for our probe to reach this far, truly, but Ive been following the Colorado Theater shooter's trial too much to adequately gaf.

If pluto isn't a planet anymore, then is Plutonium not an element anymore, either?

https://www.webelements.com/plutonium/history.html

named after "the planet Pluto".

I grew up learning the nine planets of the Solar System and, as far as I'm concerned, nothing's changed.
