WASHINGTON: U.S. space agency NASA has recognized Pluto, the second smallest celestial body in space, as the planet once again. NASA Chief Jim Bridenstine has recognized Pluto as a planet in the solar system. Pluto was expelled from the solar system in 2006 when it was the smallest in size, but now NASA has assumed that the celestial body is still a planet even after Pluto was smaller in size.
At the first robotics event recently held in Oklahoma, the United States, NASA Chief Jim Bridenstine has re-assigned Pluto to planet while speaking on the solar system. NASA Chief Jim Bridenstine has said he disagrees that the celestial body is not the planet of the Pluto Solar System.
Astronaut Cory Reppenhagen has shared a video on his official Twitter handle, in which the NASA chief says, "I think Pluto is a planet. The media here can write that the NASA administrator declared Pluto a planet again. I am committed to the way things have been learned," he said.
