Why Pluto is NOT a planet [astronomy]

C.G.P. Grey does amazing videos which teach us some of the less known facts around us. Like the fact that Pluto is not a planet and is merely an asteroid (dwarf planet, ok?) in the Kuiper Belt or that the definition of “planet” is a little bit skewed.

Pluto is not considered a planet anymore because it is very tiny and lots of other cosmic object almost the site of Pluto orbit in the same area called the Kuiper Belt. Honestly I grew knowing that we have nine planets, but I need to give place to scientific reason and send Pluto to the limits of the class. So, Pluto, we had a good run.
