News! After much discussion since 2006 when Pluto was named the dwarf planet, it has been concluded that Pluto should become a planet again. At least that's what researchers at the Florida Space Institute at the University of Central Florida say. Until now, we all knew that Pluto was a dwarf planet, now it might seem like a change. We mention that nothing is official yet and Pluto can still be considered the dwarf planet, until the Institute gives something official. 

So far no one was able to send in the perfect solution, which is not strange. Where did the idea that Pluto should be called the planet again come from and could that be the case? First, researchers at the Florida Space Institute did not take it from now, but from hundreds of years ago. From these data, they say they could prove that Pluto is the planet, not the dwarf planet. Over 400 years ago, Galileo Galilei wrote some data on whether a celestial body can be considered a planet. After that data, the researchers took it. Galileo is one of the greatest physicists of all time. 

The idea is that all the data that Galileo wrote was replaced with others in 2006. The same year that Pluto was named the dwarf planet (due to the new rules applied for a celestial body to be a planet). The International Astronomical Union is the one that in 2006 adopted other rules for classifying celestial bodies, just as Pluto did not meet the third and final new rule of becoming a planet, it was called the dwarf planet. The third (new) rule said that a planet must clear its space around it of various very small celestial bodies or space debris. Here, Pluto has lost its status as a planet. Approx. In the 1600's, Galileo Galileo said that a celestial body could be considered a planet after its geological activity. Galileo's criterion was widely accepted, from 1600 (approx.) to 1900 (approx.). 

"We've discovered that there are so many almanacs being sold in the UK and the US that every household can get a copy every year. This was an event that changed the course of history; "People agreed that the Earth revolved around the Sun, not the Sun around the Earth," explains University of California planetary scientist Philip Metzger that Pluto should be accepted as a planet. 

"The planets were no longer defined by complex phenomena, such as the need for active geology and the potential for civilization. Rather, it was described by a simple phenomenon, such as the specific movements of the Sun around it. " said planetary scientist Metzger It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. But if researchers and scientists accepted this idea, then we might find that if we use Galileo's rule, an asteroid could be the planet. Other celestial bodies could also be considered planets. According to some scientists, this idea could be accepted, but it would make a revolution in the world of astronomy and astrophysics.

We wish success for all scientists and researchers to find the best rule for classifying a celestial body as a planet.
