    Why pluto is not a planet.
    I'm sure you know Pluto is not a planet. But why?

    The International Astronomical Union downgraded the status of Pluto to that of a dwarf planet because it did not meet the three criteria the IAU uses to define a full-sized planet.
    The three criteria are:
    1)being in orbit around the Sun.
    2)having sufficient mass to assume hydrostatic equilibrium (a nearly round shape).
    3) Clearing the neighborhood around its orbit.
    Pluto doesn't satisfy the last criteria.
    Poor Pluto.
    We love Pluto.
