Publishers in orbit over astronomical amendments

"Publishers of astronomy titles are planning a programme of revisions and new editions following the decision by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) to create a new class of celestial bodies to be called dwarf planets, and to downgrade Pluto. Asteroids Ceres and 2003UB313 (nicknamed Xena) are being upgraded to join Pluto in the new category." From Publishing News
