  1. Hi all - new to the site! So far, fun! Heard the new mnemonic to remember the 8 major planets and the 3 dwarfs? (Yes, Pluto is now in its right place among the little oddballs of ice and rock.) http://www.space.com/news/ap-080227-planet...ic-contest.html "Ten-year-old Maryn Smith's winning mnemonic is My Very Exciting Magic Carpet Just Sailed Under Nine Palace Elephants." In case you're curious who are these strange dwarfs? Ceres (largest body in the Asteroid Belt - discovered over 100 years before Pluto), Pluto (duh), and Eris (larger than Pluto but over 3x further out). (Yes, I'm a science teacher and a true nerd at heart...) ::geeky::
