what do you think? How many planets in our solar system
Higher than nine.
in our solar system
Ah, the great debate on whether or not Pluto is a planet......
Eight planets we know of.
What we grew up thinking we knew shouldn't cloud scientific discovery. People were raised to think our sun revolved around Earth, but that doesn't make it right.
Higher than Nine, There are planets in our solar system beyond neptune and pluto
Well....if you count the "dwarf planets"......
How Many Planets are in the Solar System?
As far as I'm concerned, there are nine planets.
I agree with the scientists that there are eight objects in our solar system that can be classified as full planets. I remember growing up I thought Pluto was too small and eccentric. I often wondered if Pluto was just a large comet with a more "regular" orbit.
Dwarf planets may be small, but I still count them, so I say there's more than 9, definitely
Technically 10 counting ceres in the asteroid belt. (technically 900000+ if including all asteroids)
I find it a bit ridiculous that people are so passionate about the Pluto thing.
Let the experts decide, I say, so eight. As far as we know.
I just like odd numbers.
here you go.
but its still a planet. A dwarf planet. I voted don't give a rat's ass.
It's nine to me on these facts.
Plute is round, orbits the sun, and has some type of gravity to have a moon around it. Remove the name and it would sound like I was talking about Earth, Mars, or another planet.
Size should not matter when it comes to a planet, heck over 100 Earth's could fit inside Jupiter's giant red spot.
It's not really an issue of eight or nine, it's an issue of eight or thirteen. If you're going to count Pluto then there's no reason not to count Ceres, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris. Personally, I side with there being eight full planets and four known dwarf planets.
Pluto was discovered in my hometown. Because I have no scientific background at all I'm going to say with absolute certainty there are indeed 9 planets.
nine planets...dwarf or no..im going w nine..did here something bout at least two more being discovered 2 years ago or so..
