    Hummm! Since when was Pluto the closest planet to the sun? See brief shot of solar system just after video starts. Hey Rovio, if you’re trying to be educational, get the facts correct.

    Hmm. I see what you mean, but I think that’s just the perspective of the shot – Pluto’s orbit is different to the others, and you see when it zooms in that in perspective terms it’s actually the furthest.

    Yes, there is something that should be Pluto, and it does change perspective a lot, but the arrow does not appear to point to it.

    Oh yeah… Maybe it’s supposed to be pointing at the mission – i.e. the New Horizons spacecraft?

    Interesting that in all these educational videos there is no mention of Eris, the 10th planet of the Solar System discovered in 2005. Eris is similar in size to Pluto and is the most distant known object of the Solar system. However, there is no educational video about it, and there is no Eris level in the new episode of AB Space. Looks like Rovio either doesn’t know about it or pretends it was never discovered. But it was, and I think people should be educated about it.
