Pluto removed from Solar System !
I am quite late now, initially I was composing this post on 14th August and the initial draft was like,
Science keep’s moving, that’s what came to my mind when I heard that our Solar System will most probably be reduced to 8 planets and Pluto will be removed from the list. It will be considered as a Dwarf Planet, when some other round heavenly bodies like 2003 UB313 (of same size of Pluto) and some others were discovered. However Pluto’s fate will finally be decided, when a new “scientific and simple” proposal to define the word “planet” will be released on this Wednesday and astronomers will vote on it next week by The International Astronomical Union (IAU). Details can be read at here.
But when I finally got the time to post this, we all have missed Pluto😀. Yes according to the latest development on planet definitions by International Astronomical Union, Pluto has been removed from the planet list and is recognized as “Swarm of Small Things” beyond Neptune. Details can be viewed at here and also at here.
