Question description

From its discovery in 1930 up until 2006, Pluto was considered the 9th planet in the solar system. After the International Astronomical Union revised and solidified the definition of a planet, poor Pluto was demoted to "dwarf planet."

Do you think Pluto should still be designated a planet, or not? Consider the other bodies in the solar system that might merit similar classification, and defend your position. .about 3 sentences


The outer planets are sometime collectively called the "gas giants." That name is perhaps a bit misleading, given how we think of gas in earth-based situations. However, the most abundant gas in the solar nebula - hydrogen - is certainly the primary ingredient of all four Jovian planets.

In a 2-3 paragraph essay, outline some of the major differences among the Jovian planets. Describe the process of gas capture that helped to build them, and use it as a basis to explain these differences.
