    Why isn`t pluto a planet? For a planet, it must be in orbit around the sun - Pluto does, yes, but so do thousands of asteroids. Have sufficient mass to more or less be spherical - which it is. And lastly, it must have cleared the neighborhood around its orbit - i.e. must be the biggest thing of any real mass in it`s own orbit (or gravitationally dominant). Pluto`s orbit is shared with many other objects, and it even goes into Neptunes orbit. If a satelite fails on this point alone, it isn`t a `planet` but a dwarf planet.

    Thank you Matwix_2004, To make things clearer, lets think in a Dwarf Planet as a step in between a Satelite and a Planet

    It`s an icy body. Not a planet.

    "The debate still rages on..."

    I thought this was going to provide some startling new evidence that Pluto actually is a planet. I didn`t really think there was much debate anyway, rage filled or not.
