Amid new push to make Pluto a planet again... Get over it, ice-world's assassin tells El Reg


Re: Sorry Prof'

Pluto is both a small planet and a Kuiper Belt Object. The two are not mutually exclusive. The first tells us what it is; the second tells us where it is. While the Kuiper Belt is composed largely of tiny, shapeless rocks and balls of ice, it does host some small planets too.
