Comment sent to the magazine Nature

I am very disappointed with the IAU.

Yet, I understand there is a revolution underway. The scientific communauty needs to acknowledge that the "essence" of a Planet is too be massive enough to be round-shaped. Historically, the astronomers used to study planets movements in the sky only. Now that the technology is so advanced, the scientific communauty needs to stick to simple rules.This mighty new "space object" deserves more than being called a "KBU". As a planet, it will attract enough attention from the public to justify massive space exploration programs to explore it.
