In memory of Pluto

We all now that Pluto has recently been demoted from being a planet to being a dwarf planet. So now we have Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. For the dwarf planets however, we have the 2003UB313(later renamed Erin), Ceres(the asteroid), Pluto and some recently discovered bodies.

Pluto however was given recognition by giving dwarf planets from Pluto and onwards, a classification called PLUTOID. So all the dwarf planets excluding Ceres is now called a PLUTOID.
