not pluto why
NOT Pluto. Why?

A planet is an object that orbits the sun and is large enough to have become perfectly round due to the force of its own gravity. In addition, a planet has to dominate its orbit.

Because Charon, Pluto’s moon, is half Pluto’s size, Pluto is technically not dominating its orbit. Even small asteroids shift Pluto’s orbit around, demoting the tiny planet to “dwarf “planet status.

But Pluto is not alone: there are 44 other dwarf planets in our solar system to keep it company!
