No, Pluto-Charon is a double zero
Aug 24, 2006 - 08:03 AM...in answer to yesterday's question: Is Pluto-Charon a double planet?
Unfortunately the Pluto-haters at IAU have won.
For now, anyway.
According to those killjoys, there are now only eight planets.
And poor Pluto has been demoted to the status of dwarf planet.
But maybe Pluto-Charon can find some comfort in being called a "dwarf double planet"...
