WHY PLUTO IS NOT CONSIDERED A PLANET ANYMORE?

ABSTRACT

Pluto in most Detailed Form
  • It must orbit a star (in our case it’s our Sun)
  • It must be big enough to have enough gravity to force it into a spherical shape.
  • It must be big enough that gravity cleared away any other objects of similar size near its orbit around the Sun.
