Is Pluto a planet: students weigh in

“I definitely get where scientists are coming from because obviously they do research as their job, but it also seems weird that Pluto was a planet for a good while and then all of the sudden they were like ‘nope never mind’ so I don’t know I just feel like it was kind of random and they were gate keeping planet status.” -Caroline Pepiton, ‘22 (Isabella Zinchini)
“Pluto is not a planet. Like scientifically speaking, just like based off the size… I still like it though.” -Caitlin Barilleaux, ‘23 (Isabella ZInchini)
“I think [it] should be. I think once you make something a planet it should stay a planet.” -Katie Berich, ‘24 (Isabella Zinchini)
