Space nationalism

A bunch of physicists are still fired up over the International Astronomical Union’s (IAU) decision to demote Pluto

Pluto being a planet again seems to be an American preoccupation only, maybe because it was discovered by an American astronomer? Plutp's classification seems to be more a question of national pride than a physical consideration.
