Pluto is still a planet.

 

STFU "scientists".

 

The thing is, if you accept Pluto as a planet....

 

  1. Ceres 15px-Ceres_symbol.svg.png – discovered on January 1, 1801, 45 years before Neptune. Considered a planet for half a century before reclassification as an asteroid. Accepted as a dwarf planet by the IAU on September 13, 2006.
  2. Pluto 15px-Pluto_symbol.svg.png – discovered on February 18, 1930. Classified as a planet for 76 years. Reclassified as a dwarf planet by the IAU on August 24, 2006.
  3. Haumea – discovered on December 28, 2004. Accepted by the IAU as a dwarf planet on September 17, 2008.
  4. Makemake – discovered on March 31, 2005. Accepted by the IAU as a dwarf planet on July 11, 2008.
  5. Eris – discovered on January 5, 2005. Called the "tenth planet" in media reports. Accepted by the IAU as a dwarf planet on September 13, 2006.

Nice.

Ah Pluto, one day you will have your own special role in the Warframe universe and maybe even tilset.

Btw. Thanks Warframe for making me able to name 3 other dwarf planets in the solar system.

It is easier to argue that the Earth's moon is actually a planet in a binary orbit with the Earth than it is that Pluto is a planet.

 

The Moon isn't classified as a planet because the combined center of mass of the Earth/Moon system is inside of the Earth, although it isn't all that far below the surface.

If you're calling Pluto a planet (rather than a dwarf planet) then we need to upgrade the status of a few other celestial bodies.

 

You can't pick and choose what you want to call a planet. That's planetism.

Pluto features: An atmosphere, polar ice caps, and has several satellites orbiting it. The moon has: none of the above.

The moon has us!~

We're terrible neighbors. We come over uninvited and throw things at their lawn.

And then leave it there for decades after not coming back to clean it up.

Well....

 

If a planet must have satellites orbiting it, then Venus and Mercury are not planets.

 

If a planet must have atmosphere and polar ice caps, then Triton is a planet.

 

....and this is why your criteria are not formally accepted as being defining characteristics of a planet.  :)

Pluto also features: Being in an asteroid belt.

 

The Moon would have more atmosphere than Pluto if it wasn't for the Earth. As it is, the Moon significantly affects the motion of the Earth, and is closer to meeting the requirements of a planet than Pluto does. Atmosphere, ice caps, and and satellites play no part in those requirements.

Further study of the dark side of the [dwarf] planet revealed this interesting spectacle.

if DE designs a specific unique and functionally accurate depiction of a pluto tileset based on the new science... [obviously with ingame fictional lore changes as well]

 

how cool would that be? it would be super awesome, that's what it would be =]
