Quasi-satellite disproven[edit]

I updated the "Quasi-satellite" section to indicate that the quasi-satellite hypothesis has now been disproven by New Horizons. Since the whole thing turns out to have been wrong, perhaps it should be removed altogether now. StormWillLaugh (talk) 11:15, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Edit request: come into question[edit]

Currently the lead says: "After 1992, its status as a planet fell into question". Please correct this as follows: "After 1992, its status as a planet came into question". Alternatively, "was called into question". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.154.102.78 (talk) 20:51, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

yellow tickY Half done. That sentence could indeed be improved, but there are other ways to improve it further. For one, there is the verb "to question". Also, it issn't a status issue per se, but a scientific question about what the nature of Pluto within the Solar System (i.e. planethood). --JorisvS (talk) 09:08, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

good[edit]

This article is good, but some of it I do not understand — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.90.20.222 (talk) 22:02, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

Can you be more specific, such as which paragraphs/sentences could be made clearer? Gap9551 (talk) 22:07, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
