The reading and the lecture are both about consideration of Pluto as a drawf planet. In the article, there are three reasons in the support of Pluto as a drawf planet, but the lecturer disputes this reasons. First of all, The aauthor of the reading suggests that size of Pluto is small since some dwarf planets are heavier than Pluto like Eris. The lecturte rebuts this statement. He points that there are not many dwarf planet sheavier than that of Pluto. Furthermore, he says that If the classification based on the masses, the weight of blue whale is gigantic than mice but both are mammal.So, it is inconvenient to classify Pluto as dwarf planet. Secondly, the author believes that the orbit of the Pluto is not clear, and scientists make a condition to be a planet that must have a clear orbit and other object would not intersect its path. Also, he mentions that it does not fullfil scattering parameter. The lecturer casts doubt on this argument. He raises the idea that scattering parameter does not determine by planet itself. He elaborates on this by saying that two planets are revolving around two stars with different masses, so they have different orbits. Finally, the author posits that the characterstics of Pluto is more common with a comet, since it is also partially made from ice, and forms tail when it reaches nearby Sun. Moreover, he claims that it's irregular orbit does not match with other eight plaanet's orbit. The lecturer, on the other hand, rebuts this by bringing the point that Pluto has many gases like nitrogen, methane nad carbon dioxide. Furthermore, he argues that it has mountains and five large moon, which resemble more planets than a comet. In conclusion, the lecturer challenges the idea of Pluto as a dwarf planet presented in the article.
