The word “planet” is going to be officially defined for the first time in 2,500 years. The new proposed definition will increase the number of planets by at least 3, to a total of 12. Or if defined loosely may add over 50 planets to our solar system. Well, the physical objects wouldn’t be added but their designation would. In any case, you’ll be able to tell your kids, “when I was young there were only 9 planets.”
