And then there were 8

Well, it's been talked about all day long on NPR... the big news that Pluto is no longer a planet.
The scientists have finally agreed (well they are still in debates, and not everyone is in agreement). One of the quotes from the scientists says something like, " would be disastrous to come away from this without an agreement. We will look like idiots." (I'm paraphrasing since I can't type as fast as what I heard on the radio.)

So, now Pluto is officially called a "dwarf planet".
Is it just me, or does the galaxy feel a little smaller today?
