Is Pluto really a planet?

The researchers, led by Marc Buie of the Lowell Observatory, have found dark areas thought to be dirty water-ice and brighter ones indicating nitrogen frost. Red areas indicate methane ice and possibly other organics (carbon-based molecules).

The methane frost seems to be everywhere, running into dark and light areas on "a hemispheric level", said Dr Buie.

How about we goto the Moon again? There is much significance into understanding the "9" planets and most of it deals with understanding where we come from. But maybe we need to goto Pluto after we revisit our friend the Moon.
