    And yes Pluto is a planet. The IAU to their eternal shame got it very badly wrong in ever saying otherwise.

    Earth couldn’t clear its orbit in Pluto’s place either and dwarf planets should count as proper planets every bit as much as dwarf stars still count as proper stars.

    Also the IAU definition is limited to our solar system which is just ridiculous and rules out so many things such as colliding planets binary planets, forming planets and rogue planets.
