I guess it was only me who first thought of Pandora. Never mind.

At first I thought Jupiter... I'll be honest with you.

What planet first came to your mind?
It was a moon
Carnivorous flora?
Bioluminescence and its use as communication?
'Violating the boundary between plants and animals'?

I am honestly surprised anyone thought Earth. Even the shots at the start of the video look like sea creatures you'd get from Pandora.

This is Carl Sagan we're talking about, though. He can make reading a book sound epic.

THERE'S my people!
It's my opinion that the other hooligans, led on by iron jones, also thought Pandora. You sillies the point is, who on this forum couldn't think that?

Also, any real Sagan fans in the house would know that in the 80s, it was conventional to call any body large enough to be spherical which does not emit its own light (apart from auroras and civilization on earth, smartasses) a planet, even if it was also a moon. See here at 3:18:







WHEN the **** did we ever have 10 planets? (Not exactly meant to defend my calling the moon a planet, but just to show how loosely the word was and still can be used in certain contexts)

True, but if you count moons, there are 166 objects in the system (plus 8 planets) - and then, you get into whether large asteroids and comets count.

Yeah, like I said, only objects massive enough to condense into a sphere. And, in the formal definition of what is a planet, this does not hold true, but of planetary sized bodies, Pandora is a planet, because it is massive enough to be round.
