Eris Was Always Full Of Chaos.

The body that led to Pluto being demoted from planet status has finally recieved an official name: Eris. Eris was the Greek goddess of chaos and strife. The discovery of the little ball of rock with a diameter 70 miles larger than Pluto forced astronomers to come up with a definition for planets. Pluto lost. So does Eris. We have dwarf planets now that Pluto, Eris, and the asteroid Ceres fit into now.

No date has been set to christen the wannabe planets Sleepy, Dopey, Bashful, et. al.
