- Question 4:
- Do you think Xena should be classified as a planet?
or why not?
Your answers will vary. You might think Xena should be classified
as a planet because it is larger than Pluto. Pluto, however,
is not a rocky planet like Mercury, Venus, Earth. and Mars.
It is not a gas giant planet like Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus,
and Neptune. You might think Pluto should be called a Kuiper
Belt object and not a planet. Xena, therefore, also should
be called a Kuiper Belt object.
