NASA does NOT decide such things. This was a decision by the Planetary Society, an international organisation.

NASA builds stuff, develops stuff, and hurls stuff into orbit of Earth and other planets, they do not define things like that.

Either way, Pluto will always be a planet in my eyes.
Just a pic I had and thought would be relevant to this channel.

NASA said Pluto isn't a planet anymore?
Pluto said NASA isn't a company anymore.

I know it wasn't actually NASA; I read the comments below. Don't kill me for the sake of humor.

NASA didn't demote Pluto, the International Astronomical Union did.

this post in now invalid forever.

Also, it's not about size, it's about orbital dominance.

Dont those kinda go hand in hand?
User avatar #22 to #21 - pukingrainbows (06/03/2012) [-]
They have an effect on one another, but one does not imply the other. An asteroid can dominate it's orbit without being anywhere near massive enough to be a planetoid. Pluto meets the mass requirement to maintain a spheroidal shape, but it is not massive enough in relation to the other planets sharing its orbit to remain unaffected by their gravitation.

I know FJ doesn't give a **** , but cuz this IS the science channel, we really have to straighten something up.
Pluto was not stripped of its status as a planet because of its size.
There are 3 requirements on becoming a planet. The only requirement for size is that it has enough mass to pull itself into a roughly circular shape. The second requirement is that it is in orbit around the sun, which pluto is. It fails the last requirement, which is that the body must clear out its orbital path, which pluto has failed to do.

Then let's just let them both be planets, I don't care, I just want Pluto back!

Pardon the rest of us for understanding what was meant instead of what was there.

its not because it is small its because it is only a giant ice ball that got trapped in our galaxies orbit whilst passing through

There are three criteria to be a planet
one relates to composition
another to size
and the last relates to objects around it
Pluto is big enough in size and fits the composition but there are other ice dwarf planets very close to pluto

This picture has been posted too much. No complaining it wasn't a repost because it's posted weekly.
