Make Pluto a Planet Again!

I think they should make Pluto a planet again because:
(1) It revolves around the sun, which is basically the DEFINITION of "planet."
(2) It's been a planet for 76 years. Why change it now? Four generations of kids were taught that there were nine planets, and now all the good mnemonic devices we have don't work. Sure, we have "My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Noodles," but we didn't spend a kazillion years of school learning that, did we?
(3) NASA is still studying it, which is a key criteria (what is the singular of "criteria?" Criterium?) of planets. If they treat it like the other eight planets by studying it and/by sending robots to it, they might as well make it a planet. The idea of "dwarf planets" is just stupid. MAKE PLUTO A PLANET AGAIN!!!

  • Anonymous If it has its own moons, as Pluto does, then it's a planet.

  • Kiana Lightmoon I am so mad that they don't call Pluto a planet.

  • francis singh If people want to call pluto a planet then it should! Unless we start giving planets classifications like they do in star trek. I was raised to think pluto was a planet and it is!
