Summary
Did you know that Pluto is so far from the Sun that if you stood on its surface, the Sun would look like a bright, twinkling star, and nothing like the giant, shining Sun that we see from Earth? Or that scientists didn't even know that the largest dwarf planet, Eris, existed until 2005? These and dozens of other fascinating facts provide a perfect high-interest introduction to the newest lineup of objects in the solar system, Pluto and the Dwarf Planets
