True, although the conspiracy theory guys would jump all over Superman's cape blowing in the "solar" windAn Alex Ross Superman playing a Mapex Saturn on Pluto with Pluto- what's not to love here?
I was too at first (for no good logical reason), but then I read "How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming" and that changed my mind. It's a really fun read, check it out.I'm disappointed about Pluto's demotion too. It has five satellites and Earth only has one. How would we like it if we got demoted because some smart aleck decided that the only "real" planets had two or more moons, mmm?
The problem there is that both are big enough for hydrostatic equilibrium and otherwise meet the same criteria. Size just doesn't come into the definition, provided it can maintain relative hydrostatic equilibrium (and there is a bottom limit on how big an object has to be to achieve it).Pluto is not much smaller than Mercury but Charon is just too tiny.
Mapex Man- SURELY this is a job for Henri?? (I'll beg if I have to) : )What we really need is a Mapex Light, so when ever Sabian City is threatened by baddies we can shine the light to the night sky and summon Mapex Man.
