~mod~ Topic: Pluto

This is an old topic yet one that is still being debated, and I think it's a fun one, so I thought I would bring it up.

Should Pluto be considered a minor planet?

Some facts about Pluto:

Has a highly eccentric orbit that crosses Neptune's path.
Orbit's out of the plane of the solar disc.
Is smaller than most moons of the other seven planets, at 1/5 the size of our moon Luna.
Over half of it's orbit lies in the region of the Kuiper belt.
