Pluto has been stripped of its planet status. The International Astronomical Union made the decision today at a meeting in Prague.
Pluto's been a planet since it was discovered in 1930. Astronomers say their new guidelines for a "classic planet" boots the furthest rock from the sun out. They say Pluto is too small -- smaller even than the Earth's moon -- and it has an eccentric orbit.
The change is expected to cost millions for schools who will need to get updated textbooks with the new eight planet solar system included.
