“10th Planet” Discovered To Have Moon

Although scientists still debate whether the 10th planet should be classified as a planet, they have all but confirmed that the object has a moon. One of the discoverers, Michael Brown of the California Institute of Technology, “labeled the object a planet and nicknamed it Xena after the lead character in the former TV series Xena: Warrior Princess. The moon was nicknamed Gabrielle, after Xena’s faithful traveling sidekick.” I can’t think of anything to say that isn’t offensive… 😉
