Time it Took Pluto to Learn of His Non-Planet Status
I saw a funny Tumblr post my friend had reblogged about Pluto's reponse to its declassification as a planet1. And so like any good nerd, I wanted to know how long it would actually take before Pluto heard the news and we hear his response.
Turns out, it would be about 9 hours before we got to hear his exasperated reply.
Fun fact: I remember exactly where I was when I heard about Pluto. I was sitting in my great-aunt's rocker reading the news on my phone. I even remember blogging about it somewhere, though I can't recall where. ↩
