Still honking for Pluto..

Cassini has been sending back close-up images of Enceladus after its fly-by [and the BBC reports are getting bloggy – Ed]. Saturn, pictured again, is still a planet, but it seems that some people still haven’t gotten over Pluto’s annus horribilis – and those plutoids didn’t help. There are those still honking for Pluto’s return to full planet status, or as the Professor puts it, “The Pluto planet controversy continues.” Alan Boyle of MSNBC reports here on the Great Planet Debate.. and his comments zone includes comments from chief honker, Alan Stern, of Nasa’s New Horizons mission..
