    I Know Pluto Isn't Counted As A Planet Anymore (Which I Really Thought Was Stupid) But Can It Would Be A Nice Planet To Visit :)

    Yes it is stupid that pluto ain't a planet it still has a gravitational pull.

    *puts on science dude hat*

    There were a couple of reasons for Pluto's reclassification from a Planet to a Minor Planet. The first is that astronomers didn't have a definition on what a planet is. In the past 15 years the number of planets discovered went from 9 to over 800 around other stars (with 2000 more on the waiting list because we don't have enough data yet). With so many new planets scientists needed a better way of organizing and talking about these new discoveries.

    One of the new definitions of being a planet is that it must be massive enough to keep its orbit clear and its barycenter under the surface. In other words it must be strong enough to keep its room clean. Pluto's gravity isn't strong enough to clear out its orbit and one of its moons is so big that the barycenter isn't even inside the planet (the barycenter is the balance point between two bodies. Think of holding someone's hand and spinning around in a circle. If you are the same size your barycenter will be half way between you. An NFL line backer and a 3 year old the balance point will be in the linebacker's body).

    As a result of this new definition Pluto joins 3 other bodies as Minor Planets. This brings the total number of known planets in our solar system to 12.

    pluto would be indeed a nice addition.
    it can also be a nice idea to add his moon Charon as well.
    if you stand on pluto and look at it, charon would be at least ten times large then the normal moon sprite of the overworld.

    could give a nice fiew:)

    I think it's a nice idea but it should be a priority for now.

    so pluto and charon could be considort as a twin (dwarf) planet (like dubble starts)

    If you are to do Pluto, than you would at least have to put in it's main partner, Charon.

    The only reason its barycenter is outside it is because of its freakishly large moon. However, its moon, while large compared to pluto, is much smaller than ours! Plus, if that "clear the orbit" thing were true Earth and Jupiter wouldn't be planets either. NEOs and Trojans prove that. Therefore, both "reasons" for Pluto not being a planet just boil down to them not wanting such a tiny thing as a planet.

    Every bit of matter that exists in the universe has a gravitational pull, but if will classify everything as a planet the word kind of loses some of its meaning don't you think?
