NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine was captured on video saying “Just so you know, in my view Pluto is planet…And you can write that the NASA administrator declared Pluto a planet once again.”

It has been a long 13 years since Pluto was demoted and delabeled a planet by the International Astronomical Union. Pluto was reassigned the lonely title of dwarf planet since it had not cleared the neighborhood around it of debris.

With a NASA administrator throwing their weight into the Pluto classification debate, we can only hope that one day Pluto’s true status of planet will be restored. Pluto you are planet to me, now and forever.
