The reason Pluto lost its planet status is not valid, according to new research from the University of Central Florida in Orlando.

If adopted, this would return Ceres to being a planet, and our solar system would have 11. Let's see, how would that work for a mnemonic?

If we remove the clear surrounding area criteria we're gonna have to add a bunch of moons to that list too.
