The Big Bang Theory says that the universe came from a little spec of matter about the size of a sugar cube or a pea (don"t ask how they determined this, they won"t be able to tell you). That this spec of matter started expanding, slowly, then the particles from it were dispersed, and formed hydrogen atoms from those particles, then these hydrogen atoms formed nebulas, which formed stars, which blew up and chunks of matter flew everywhere, forming rocks, which smashed together and formed planets...

Should Charon be considered a dwarf planet?

Axonly

While Charon is currently considered a moon of Pluto, I believe it s...
