Jupiter as we could build a Space station on Europa that could house a Hydrogen plant in order to make rocket fuel to get us out of the solar system

According to the collective brain cell, Pluto ain't a planet......

No, according to the IAU, a private organization of scientists with no more authority to classify the universe than the owner of a 7-11 franchise, Pluto ain't a planet. They're entitled to an opinion. But there's no reason to accept it. Most 7-11 owners are craftier and more experienced than most IAU member scientists anyway.

It's actually easier to generate and contain a mini black hole to power extra-solar-system spacecraft.
