IAU Resolution 5B Fails

Resolution 5B, which would have created the term "classical planet" to describe the big eight, just failed after a standing vote. What this means is that the solar system now officially has eight "planets" and (should resolution 6A pass) one "dwarf planet," which is Pluto. In essence, Pluto has lost the right to be called a planet along with the others. From now on, if resolution 6A passes, it will have to be known as a dwarf planet.

A bittersweet result for us Pluto supporters.
