The tenth planet is found! At least if you jump on the bandwagon that anything larger than an existing planet (that is not a moon) must also be a planet.
Personally, I think that Pluto should be downgraded from planet status to mere Kuiper belt object. It’s not going to bother me if we only have 8 planets instead of 9.
For more information than you really care for on Kuiper belt objects, please see the Google search on Kuiper belt, or go to the first hit on the search returns
Remember, “Kuiper” rhymes with “Viper”.
