What is a Planet? Mars, Pluto, and Exoplanets

Date: 3/11/2019

Description:
 A major topic on the internet today is the question of the definition of a planet. In 2006 the International Astronomical Union (IAU) officially changed the definition of a planet. No longer was Pluto to be called a planet, but a dwarf planet. We will examine examples of objects inside and outside our solar system; addressing the issue as to whether or not they should be considered an example of a planet.
