We recently wrote about what we hoped might be a new shot at a tenth planet (disregarding for now the fact that scientists last year "demoted" Pluto). A couple years ago, we published a poem by Jack on what was then the current candidate for the Tenth Planet:
The Tenth Planet, or an incredible facsimile
by Jack Brummet
Is it a planet or not?
It depends on
What it's orbiting around.
A planet must orbit a star.
Round objects floating freely
Through space don't count.
If an object orbits a much larger object
That is not a star
Then it's not a planet either.
Scientists are slated to announce
Very soon whether or not that rock
Floating out there is the tenth planet
If it isn't
