B152 The Planets
Our knowledge of space has been rapidly expanding and this is well demonstrated by looking out our own back door and up at the night sky. When Pluto was discovered in 1930, it became the ninth planet in our solar system. With its radius of only 714 miles (1,153 km), it was certainly the smallest.
It's been knocked off the list. We're back to eight planets.
    Astronomers have known about Ceres since 1801. It was first classified as a planet, but then later as an asteroid. Haumea was discovered in 2004. It was about a third the mass of Pluto. 2005 saw the discovery of Makemake, which is about two thirds the size of Pluto and Eris, twice the size of Pluto.
   These discoveries led the International Astronomical Union in 2006 to establish three categories for objects that orbit the sun. They are planets, dwarf planets and everything else. Pluto was downgraded and Ceres upgraded so that they are now dwarf planets. Along with Haumea and Makemake, there are now four dwarf planets, but other candidates have been suggested for such status.
    There have been many posters published on the planets, but none come even remotely close to the comprehensive overview of the subject provided by this new Feenixx version, as it is based on our principal of providing a comprehensive overview of the subject.
    The planets are divided into three groups: (1) the terrestrial planets, (2) the gas giants and (3) the dwarf planets. Each group has its own unique characteristics, which are explained. Within this context, each planet is faithfully and accurately rendered through highly detailed illustrations. This permits cutting out a slice to show a cross section of the interior. Terse and informative text explain the differences between the planets. This is by far the most comprehensive, informative and beautiful poster on the the planets ever produced. It makes its many predecessors look like child's play.

STATUS: Research, initial layout and the first draft of the text are now complete. It is anticipated that this new poster will be complete by the end of 2014. Feenixx is also planning a poster on the solar system which will be unique in content and presentation. The two posters may be published individually or together. Because of this, no publication date has been established.
