It's such a shame that Colin Matthews went to the trouble of adding a ninth movement to Holst's eight only a few years before Pluto was downgraded.

I'm pretty sure they just think that earth is not a planet as (other) planets can be viewed with relative ease and be observed to be round, but earth can only be viewed from a non-planetary standpoint which they are all too stupid to be able to do . At least thats what the flat earth society say, most probably have differing standpoints since the roundness of earth can be measured and observed using a few dollars/pounds/whatever and an iq of more than 75.

Mercury and the moon look surprisingly similar.

Level 45
Jun 12, 2020
Can anyone explain in simple terms why Mercury looks much more like a moon (or rather THE moon) than all of the other planets? Being closest to the sun, I could see maybe that the sun's gravitational pull attracts more asteroids that hit the surface of the planet but I'm still surprised that the difference is so stark.

I believe the main cause is that ther isn't and never was an atmosphere to smoothen the craters out. Pluto and the gas giant moons also look similar.

atmosphere blasted away by solar radiation? And also it's relatively small so the craters look bigger and its gravity is less. Weaker forces of erosion. Less protection from impacts. Clearer view of the surface.

it is literally a big rock among other big rocks. the other planers are who need some kind of explanation for smoothnes or colour due to some geological ot chemical causes
