i think it’s a universal truth that everyone in our generation takes pluto’s losing its planetary status as a personal offense
pluto is smaller than russia. why did we ever even consider it a planet?
BECAUSE IT’S A PART OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM
OHANA MEANS FAMILY
FAMILY MEANS NO ONE IS LEFT BEHIND
Okay I see something like this every day… Y’all do know that Pluto was not “demoted” in any sense of the word right? They changed the SYSTEM with which planets are CLASSIFIED so that children in school can learn about the CHARACTERISTICS that determine what a celestial body is instead of COUNTING how many there are.
Pluto is now classified as a dwarf planet, a descriptor that has now made room for possibly dozens of other similar celestial bodies that were originally somewhat disregarded, within our own solar system.
Instead of droning out the number of planets, the shift will be that people learn about the characteristics of different objects in the solar system. By classifying them it gives us an index with which to talk about other celestial bodies in other parts of the universe.
This is a unifying idea.
people getting upset over this shit is disappointing. this is the way science works. we create theories, we learn more through experiments/observation, & then we modify those theories. it’s how we learn & grow - embrace it.
"Pluto, its orbit is elongated so severely that it crosses the orbit of Neptune. Now, we have words for objects that cross the orbits of other planets and are made of mostly ice; they’re called comets. By the way, there are six moons in the solar system that are bigger than Pluto including Earth’s moon, which is five times the mass of Pluto. So really, Pluto was never the ninth planet; it was the first of a new class of objects that we didn’t really discover the rest of until the early 1990s."

i always wonder whos the fucking journo-school dildo walking around warzones and other ‘embattled areas’ iphone photographing devastated mothers who just received news of their childrens deaths
like what the fuck is wrong with u u vile piece of shit how do u let ur body go thru all the motions involved with that and never consider “im gross”
i totally get this, but those images often times shock people out of apathy & into action. ex. images/video of the devastation during the vietnam war led to the massive amount of public unrest which was responsible for ending that conflict.
it would be nice if simply reading about atrocities was enough to get people off the couch, but it’s sadly not the case.
i don’t know how to solve this problem, but putting a real, human face to the pain & suffering you read about is extremely powerful.
Look, I denounce deadly force on both sides, but it’s important to not frame this as a cycle of violence that is equal. One is the colonizer/oppressor. The other, the colonized/oppressed. As IDF General [??] said just yesterday on the show, there are two choices for Palestinians in occupied territories: to completely surrender, or resist. And resistance is what we’re seeing now.
I am sick of my Palestinian friends losing their friends and family ever time Israel goes on the offense against innocent people living in an open-air prison. So if demolishing homes, conducting mass arrests, and bombing civilians is “responsible,” I shudder to think how many people have to die in order to define irresponsibility.
