After the period of 8 long years of being demoted from the galaxy of our solar system, Pluto can now be called at the verge of being counted in again. The Pluto was thrown out from the list of planets in 2006 by International Astronomical Union (IAU) after the discovery of another dwarf planet Eris.
A debate was held at the Harvard Smithsonian in which the audience poll was arranged on whether Pluto should rejoin the solar system or not and positives results were more in numbers than those saying no.
From the ancient days Pluto always assigned a third-class status and at last the solar system was officially announced of comprising of eight planets which outraged not only the scientists but the general public too.
Moreover the Harvard Origins of Life Initiative, Dimetar Sasselov claimed that current definition of a planet is not sufficient due to which Pluto failed to be counted in. He also proposed the new definition in which he suggested that planets are simply ‘the smallest spherical lump of matter that formed around stars’.
The public poll and this new definition is not a legal binding but can pave a way back for the neglected planet, Pluto for our very own solar system.
