NASA Administrator Says Pluto Still a Planet and Things Warm Up



Saturday, August 24, 2019 marked an unpleasant anniversary for planetary scientists. It's been 13 years until the day when Pluto's official definition changed – what was once numbered among the planets of the solar system is now just a humble dwarf planet.

But not everyone agrees with the decision of the International Astronomical Union – and now NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstein has added his voice to the chorus, claiming support for Pluto's membership of the planetary club of the solar system.

"You just know, in my view, Pluto is a planet," he said during a tour of the Aerospace Engineering Building at the University of Colorado Boulder.

"You can write that the NASA Administrator has declared Pluto again on the planet. I stick to it, this is the way I learned it and committed to it."
