    No. Too small.

    But if you ask me how many planets we have, I'll say nine, lol. For the rest of my life. Too hard to change.

    Well , If Pluto is to small To be a Planet, Then Babies Are Not Human!

    Do you get my Logic?

    I believe that Pluto is now considered a microplanet or some such silliness, along with two or three other chunks of rock about the same size.

    No it is not a planet. If we give pluto "planet status" that we have to give Ceres (an asteroid) Planet status.
    Thus to keep it simple astronomers and NASA demoted it to a dwarf planet. There are several dwarf planets
    now in our solar system.

    If they find more, Disney might just have the makings of a sequal: "Sleeping Beauty 2012: Revenge of the Seven Dwarves"

    Dwarf planets are still planets cause if they aren't than midgets are not humans.
