Hey, there is talk around about the financial implications of the recent demotion of P-P-P-luto. Am I fixated or what?<br><br>Here is an excerpt, because I know where Walzuhair is coming from about links links links:<br><br>Affected by the move are stacks of school textbooks, diner place mats, bedroom posters, computer software, glow-in-the-dark mobiles, encyclopedias, and entire museum exhibits depicting the now-obsolete nine-planet solar system. But while it's clear that the change will mean significant replacement costs for businesses in the education industry, other pockets of space commerce are counting on the upsurge of interest in things planetary to generate new growth.<br><br>At Chicago's Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum, the ongoing debate about the categorization of planets over the past few months has already sparked newfound interest in museum exhibits, sky shows, and an interactive classroom called CyberSpace\which is equipped to quickly reflect scientific advancements like these. "It's exciting for the general public," said Susan Wagner, Adler's vice-president for exhibits and programs. "We are here to educate, and we will be very happy to engage the visitors in this debate."<br><br>We are what we repeatedly do. -Aristotle

The Smithsonian Institution & NASA collaborated on a 1-to-10-billion scale model of the Solar System that was permanently installed on the National Mall in Washington DC. The Sun monument begins outside of the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum and ends several blocks away in front of the original Smithsonian. Here's the pic of Pluto monument to remember my 1-to-10-billion scale walk... so now we'll have to tell our lazy ass kids who will complain when they have to walk all the way to Neptune about the good ol' days when had to walk all the way to Pluto. <br><br><br><br><br>
