How Stupid are you?

Name of our Solar System

Hate to break it to you, but "Milky Way" is the name of our GALAXY.

Also, would you call Pluto a planet?

It's only really a Kuiper Belt object, and doesn't really merit the definition.

Pluto is still officially a planet. They have not taken the title of planet away yet.

Yup, the name of the solar system is "The Solar System", in fact, if we're being really pedantic, the galaxy is'nt called the milky way either, it's simply "The Galaxy". The Milky Way is it's "friendly name".

And yes, Pluto is classed as a planet, by most if not all astronomical organisations.
