New Research Claims Pluto Should Be Planet

According to new research -- Pluto should be reclassified as a planet. 

In 2006 -- the International Astronomical Union downgraded Pluto to a dwarf planet.

The IAU defines a planet as having the largest gravitational force in its orbit, which disqualifies Pluto because it is under the influence of Neptune's gravity.

In a published paper, a planetary scientist argues that the definition of a planet shouldn't be based on things that can change, such as the dynamics of a planet's orbit.
