"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.

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

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.
