In class we talked a lot about how Pluto wasn’t a planet anymore and how it affected the world and science. I remember when this first came out in the news, I thought people were kidding and it was just a giant scam or joke. After being told this, I remember going home from school and telling my mom that Pluto wasn’t a planet anymore and laughing, then she actually told me it was true and I started to do research on why it wasn’t a planet anymore. I thought it was cool to see how all the people reacted in class and how society reacted when we watched all those videos. It’s crazy that so many people thought it was the worst thing ever that Pluto wasn’t a planet anymore, although I do feel bad the the little guy. I remember when it got to the point where everyone talked about it, I literally wanted to go up to the planet and give it a hug. It’s so weird how people like you and me got so upset about a planet that is so far away. And it created such a diversion in the world, for instance that Facebook group that contained 1.5 million people demanding Pluto to be a planet again. It’s so crazy how far people will go for things not to change. I feel like this scenario puts a label on America that we don’t like change, and it’s true. I see it everywhere; at my job, at my church, everywhere. People don’t like change and when scientists do this to America people go crazy and almost riot. One thing I did like that was in one of the interviews we saw, was that even though Pluto isn’t a planet anymore, it was considered the king of the asteroids, or something like that. Which I think is pretty cool, considering all that America felt towards it, even though Pluto isn’t a planet anymore it’s not completely forgotten, it’s still recognized in space, and I think that’s pretty cool.
