Ceres is the largest object in the asteroid belt, and NASA’s Dawn spacecraft will arrive there on March 6.

Pluto is the largest object in the Kuiper belt, and NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft will arrive there on July 15.

These two events will make 2015 an exciting year for solar system exploration and discovery. But there is much more to this story than mere science. I expect 2015 will be the year when general consensus, built upon our new knowledge of these two objects, will return Pluto and add Ceres to our family of solar system planets. . . .


Please read the article and help the author by supportive comments. He is being ad hominemed to death. The science and reason he uses to support his arguments are sound; his opponents are double-talking damned fools whose desire to kick both Pluto and Ceres out of the Solar System are based on weird emotions and prejudices, not reason and not science. Strike a blow for real astronomical science -- and for an intelligent and scientifically knowledgeable author who is being unfairly and unjustly attacked.
