Natural Order in the Solar System

Being wedded to the base 10 numerical system -- not having much choice about it, really -- I have always thought that our solar system should have ten planets, and not nine. Well, astronomers have finally put things right: there are -- some astronomers say -- 10 planets. See http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2004/03/15/1079199151404.html.

If you appreciate (our new knowledge of) our planetary order, you should really join the call to Save the Hubble!
