PLUTO-not planet anymore

Since my childhood, I have been taught that there are 9 planets in all.
But recent studies,has shown that there are 8 planets in all and PLUTO is not to be considered as planet anymore.

PLUTO has now been characterised in DWARF PLANETS.

Dear K

2-3 years... It should be in 2-3 months...
Scientests have discovered 3 more planets ... Don't remember name but they are going to add very soon... Total of 11..hurrahhh....

Meeting in Prague over the past week, IAU members rejected a proposal to increase the number of planets to 12 by including Ceres, the largest known asteroid, which orbits between Mars and Jupiter; Charon, which has been considered Pluto's moon; and 2003 UB313, an object nicknamed "Xena" that was discovered in 2005 orbiting far beyond Pluto.
Pluto is now considered a "dwarf planet" because it has an oblong orbit that overlaps with Neptune's orbit.
Ceres and Xena will also be considered dwarf planets. Charon is simply one of the "small solar system bodies."

well! i think the 3 extra planets that were in discussion in prague were ceres,charon,xena and even the jupiters moon "GABRIELE" was also in discussion.
and does anyone have any information on the mission planned by NASA to deflect a 200km. asteroid which is slated to hit earth around 2035.
