Pluto has been classified as dwarf planet, in 2006, by the International Astronomical Union, in a decision that sparked widespread controversy and did not gain unanimity in the scientific community.

The scientific decision, at that time, was based on a lack of consideration forPlutoThere are three main requirements for it to be worthy of describing a planet.

In the context of a study published in the scientific journal “Ikarus”, researchers urged their peers in the Union astronomy international, to reconsider their classification.

The study stressed the need to retract the definition that they described as unscientific, as well as to stop teaching this matter.

According to the standards of the International Astronomical Union, a space object needs several conditions in order to be a planet; The first is that it is spherical, in addition to revolving around a star, and not sharing its magnetic surroundings with other things in its orbit.

When the status of the “planet” was withdrawn from “Pluto” in 2006, the researchers attributed their decision to the presence of an object in its orbit called “Poltinus”.

But researchers from several prestigious institutions and institutes conducted their research for years, and they ended up not accepting the criteria of International Astronomical Union, saying they were too quick to strip Pluto from the planet.

And distinguished scientists continue to refer to the planet “Pluto” as a planet, ignoring the decision issued by the International Astronomical Union.

In 2019, the official at the US Space Agency said:NASAJim Berndenstein, he considers “Pluto” a planet like other planets.

In the same vein, astronomer Alan Stern, who led the “New Horizons” mission to “Pluto”, confirmed that he views the latter as a planet and does not consider it a dwarf planet.
