solar system changes

xkcd, of course

Well this is a great start on an interesting concept, but:

  • Don't merge Jupiter and Saturn.  They are both super cool and have amazing moons, and having two of them means twice as many.
  • I prefer Uranus to Neptune.  But agree we only need one.
  • Pluto is a planet!  It orbits the sun.  Instead of making it a moon - we already have lots of them - I'd add a mirror anti-Pluto on the other side, synchronized.  And a weird spacetime hypertunnel between them.
  • Finally, we need more stuff out of the plane of the ecliptic.  How about a planet that orbits the sun but goes around its poles?
  • And of course ... more cowbell.

What do you think?
