Sedna is the most distant solar system object discovered so far. It is about three times farther away than Pluto currently is. Because it is so far away, scientists are not sure if it has enough mass to be classified as a dwarf planet.

No, there are a lot of objects more distant than Pluto. Sedna, probably a dwarf planet, has an aphelion of about 31 times the distance of Neptune. Long period comets are thought to be even further out. The Oort cloud, which is part of the solar system, lies at its edge at 50,000 AUs distant.

Pluto is a member of the solar system because any object in the solar system is a member of the solar system. However, if you were asking if Pluto is a planet in the solar system then the answer is no. Pluto used to be a planet but is now considered a dwarf planet.

At the very far distant edge.

The biggest object in the solar system is the sun, and the smallest is Pluto

Pluto is the farthest planet from the sun and therefore has the most distant object to orbit the sun. However, scientists are continually discovering new objects in the outer space.

There are no people on Pluto, or on any other object in our solar system except Earth.

Pluto is a dwarf planet. The Pluto/Charon system is the largest known Kuiper Belt Object, or Transneptunian Object. Pluto itself is the second largest known Kuiper Belt object, just behind Eris.

In our solar system, The farthest planet away from the centre, i.e. the sun is Pluto. However some people argue that Pluto is not an actual planet, but a dwarf planet. In this case, Neptune is the most distant planet.

Pluto the planet? Pluto was not destroyed, it was downgraded. The celestial object known as Pluto still does exist at the outer edge of our solar system. It is now known as a dwarf planet.

Itโ€™s just another Kuiper Belt object.Pluto still is in the solar system. However, because of its smaller size and gravitational pull, it is no longer considered a planet. Pluto is a dwarf planet.

No. Nothing has replaced Pluto. The object known as "Planet Biyo" is actually an asteroid, not a planet.

No, Pluto is the last object in normal rotation around our Sun, although it has been determined that Pluto is not technically a planet.

it has been classfied as a rocky object in the solar system that the gravitational it forces apply to

It is not the dominant object in the neighbourhood of its orbit.

it is about 11 years away from ach other

Yes because Pluto is no longer in our solar system and the planets after Pluto are not in our solar system

Neptune is the second furthest major object from the sun in our solar system. Pluto is the furthest.

Yes, Pluto is part of our solar system.

rocks were pulled to the biggest object in the area. in this case it was Pluto

No. Pluto orbits in our solar system.

Pluto is known for being the second object in history to have lost its status as a major planet. The first object to do this was Ceres.

It's not even a planet, but a dwarf planet. Jovian Planets are big and not solid.Pluto is a solid object with a relatively thin atmosphere.Pluto is small, smaller than any true planet in the solar system.Pluto is not a planet but a dwarf planet.

None. There are not even any plans in development to visit Eris. Humans have never gone farther than the moon. Pluto is the most distant object visited by a man-made object.

No.. Its quite impossible for us to reach Pluto because the closest distance between the Earth and Pluto occurs when Earth is at its most distant from the Sun, and Pluto is at its closest. And the Sun, Earth and Pluto are lined up in a perfect line. When this happens, Pluto and Earth would be separated by 4.2 billion km. At their most distant, Earth would be at its furthest at the opposite side of the Sun from Pluto. At this point, Earth and Pluto would be separated by 7.5 billion km. And so, the distance from Earth to Pluto ranges between these two distances.

For Pluto: the closest distance between the Earth and Pluto occurs when Earth is at its most distant from the Sun, and Pluto is at its closest. And the Sun, Earth and Pluto are lined up in a perfect line. When this happens, Pluto and Earth would be separated by 4.2 billion km. At their most distant, Earth would be at its furthest at the opposite side of the Sun from Pluto. At this point, Earth and Pluto would be separated by 7.5 billion km.For earth moon: At its closest point, known as the perigee, the Moon is only 363,104 km and at its most distant point, called apogee, the Moon gets to a distance of 406,696 km.This means that the earth moon is closer to earth than Pluto
