Turns out Pluto is still a planet! This bit of good news comes courtesy of the completely not-crazy State of Illinois, who in their infinite wisdom when it comes to matters of astronomy, has voted Pluto back among the ranks of planets in our solar system. They also declared today, March 13, to be “Pluto Day” in honor of the newly-reinstated planet. Oh, the joy!
You can all go back to your regularly scheduled lives now.
