Is Pluto a planet?

Don’t we just love astronomy? I mean think about it, all those planets, moons and stars that surrounds us. There are so very many that there’s no way someone would be able to find us if they didn’t know where to look for. But for a common human being, 8 planets, a star and a moon are more than enough to get though a normal daily life. Oh, what’s that? You’re saying there’re 9 planets in our system? If you think so, then you need to update your star charts a little bit as we’ve lost Pluto as a planet in 2006. Well, we gave him a proper home in its freezing asteroid belt where it belongs.
All this and more is explained in the video below where it’s discussed whether a word ‘planet’ is actually still of any use in this day and age when we know so much more. Not to mention we’d have to update a lot of books about planets.
