Chambliss, with whom I worked at Kutztown University for many years. The talk highlighted Pluto's demotion as a planet, but a subtext of that lecture was a digression about how the number of planets has " changed over the centuries. Go back to the Greeks, and anything that was a wanderer was considered a planet. Included were the sun ,~ ~ and the moon, but not the Earth. There were seven planets in antiquity. Fast forward to 1543 when Copernicus, the Polish astronomer, revitalized the early Greek concept of a sun-center universe. Now the planets numbered six - Mercury through Saturn, including the Earth. In 1781, the musician-tamed-astronomer, William Herschel, discovered Uranus and increased the planetary fold to seven. When G iuseppe Piazzi discovered the first asteroid in 1801, there were eight, but by 1807 that number had jumped to eleven when additionally Pallas, Juno, and Vesta were added to the planetary lineup. In 1846 the German, Johann Bode, found Neptune atter being mathematically predicted by John Adams (English) and Urbain Le Verrier (French). By 1851 with more asteroids in the mix, the total number of planets had risen to 31. The planetary entourage was becoming increasingly confusing until the Royal Astronomical Society of England said, "Enough!" and reduced the number of planets to eight in 1852 - Mercury through Neptune. When Pluto was discovered by the American, Clyde Tombaugh, in 1930, we had our ninth planet, but it was simply too small. Controversy erupted in the twenty-first century as other trans-Neptunian objects were found, and one TNO, Eris, was discovered to be larger than Pluto The debate was finally settled in 2006 by the International Astronomical Union which demoted Pluto and created a new type of solar system object called a dwarf planet. Dr. Chambliss voted "yes" for Pluto's demotion, Mom a.v. November 3 Elii0h Herrmndez Emm Perguero N h01h Be 0rnin Emily Brown ; Bemodette Foote Before you go back to the mainland... Subscribe today.
