Obeject called "Xena" officially named Eris. I don't give a crap about Pluto's demoted status, this is awesome.

Fuckin' A. I thought it was a pretty awesome move as well.

Although I always like Pluto as well.


Even if it isn't a planet, it'll always be Pluto to me. Whatever they consider it now...

It is still called Pluto, and it is still floating around out there. It just doesn't fit in with the technical definitely of a planet.

What is the most awesome is that they've named its satellite "Dysnomia." Considering the name change(s) for now-Eris, that's just hilarious.
