s4ck writes "ZDnet, Reuteurs and multiple other news source are reporting that votes have been counted and Pluto is not a "planet" anymore- it's a dwarf. It's official : our solar system has eight planets. The other celestial bodies that were up for the title have been rebutted and will be called small solar system bodies. Btw, ESS wasn't involved in the election process and they'll be no recount. So better start explaining to my awkward nerdish little niece why her favorite planet, the fringe one isn't the outcast of our system anymore. you see, it's simply out."
