and only one star system called the Solar system, same as there is
only one the Moon.

So, I guess by definition... there are no other planets in the universe
since the definition only refers
to ...our Sun.

One need not to be a genius to see the definition is outdated.

Enough would to lower the letters,

I don't think "outdated" is the problem, ...it's that the IAU members are 'small-minded people'.


The International Astronomical Union (IAU) is international, not universal.


The International Astronomical Union (IAU) just nitpick this rock here and that rock there...


The word Astronomical probably refers to Astrology...

And Jupiter aligns with Mars

More correctly, there is only one star called "Sol", our sun, and the
system of bodies that orbits the star called "Sol" is called "the Solar
System"!!

It depends on language.
Sol in Latin, Sun in English.

"The Solar System" is what the IAU was talking about.
The bodies gravitationally bound to Sol, and whatever
else is in the same space - solar wind, etc.

Daniel60's mistake was to get dragged into orbit
of the dark star. For most everyone else there -
