It turns out Pluto has an atmosphere that extends out further than expected, shares a center of gravity with Charon that is in space between the two bodies, instead of inside her mass. She’s bigger than expected, she’s round,¬†and geologically astounding, so it is my belief Pluto should be reinstated as a planet, or at the very least labelled our solar system’s only dual planet system.

 

She’s sexy, she’s big and bad. She deserves it.
