It seems that scientists at Cal Tech have discovered that the 10th planetlike thing in our solar system, designated as UB313,  is smaller than previously thought.  By using the Hubble Space Telescope, UB313’s diameter measures only 1,490 miles instead of around 2,200 but, nonetheless, is still larger than Pluto.  Astronomers are in a quandry as to whether they should call it a planet or they should declassify Pluto as a planet.  One thing is sure, though, they ought to give it a proper name.  One of the scientists has nicknamed it Xena but in keeping with its original designation,  I thought maybe they could call it Eubie.
