Do you really think that pluto is a dwarf planet? Do you know the real reason why pluto is considered a dwarf planet?Pluto is not as small as you think. If you compare pluto to our moon it is only 700 miles smaller. Pluto also isn't a comet because it has 5 moons. But each planet has three requirements to be named a planet. They must orbit the sun , they must be circular and they must clear its orbit of debris. Pluto completes two of the three rules. The only rule that pluto doesn't do is the third rule. But technically the Earth and Jupiter violate this rule as well, And because Jupiter is the furthest away from the sun it gets the worst of the debris.
Pluto is made up of many things that the Earth is made up of such as ice and rocks. It is also highly undiscovered due to it being deplanitized. We have no idea what its atmosphere is made of, subsurface ocean and if it has a magnetic field. How can you classify a planet as a dwarf planet if you haven't discovered what it really is. Also did you know that there are around 10,000 members internationally of the Astronomical Union and only 237 members voted to deplaitize pluto. While 157 voted against demoting Pluto. The other 9,500 members weren't even at the vote.
I think that the International Astronomical Union should cut Pluto some slack and reconsider making it a planet again.
