Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

The Google doodle celebrating Copernicus made me think of planetary mnemonics.

I guess there are new ones now, since Pluto was determined not to be a planet.

I learned My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine Pies.

Which one did you learn?

4. I don't recall learning any regarding the planet.

BTW, I only see 7 planets in the doodle. Did we lose another one?

6. I've been wondering that myself.

I figured the artist was being picky about how they wanted it to look. Prettiness over scientific accuracy kinda thing.

12. Nope

Neptune wasn't discovered until 1846. It was the first planet found by prediction, not observation.

Thanks for bringing up the doodle - I hadn't seen it.

It's like it tells a whole story, minus the details. I can actually see this happening.

9. How old were you?

I think the mnemonics stuff about the planets is from kids' books about space. Aimed at ages 4-6.

A&P stuff is of course for college kids. I'm sure a few of them might just learn it, too.

11. probably about five--knew 'em all before I was in first grade.

It was right at the time of John Glenn's Mercury flight, and I got into the space stuff pretty heavily.
