Eight major planets managed to do this, but not Pluto, which is not a major influence on the Kuiper Belt. This new definition of planets which exludes Pluto has caused a lot of interest and discussion, with Astronomers and the general public alike coming out loudly on both sides of the argument. I think it's safe to say that any decision by the IAU would have upset someone, but putting the definition of a planet on an objective scientific footing will likely (ultimately) be popular with Astronomers.

Now, let’s look at a few details including the definition of a planet and a dwarf planet, as well as details about each of the planets in our Solar System. It soon became clear that either they all had to be called planets or Pluto and bodies like it would have to be reclassified. With much controversy then and since, Pluto was reclassified as a dwarf planet in 2006. This also reclassified the asteroid Ceres as a dwarf planet, too, and so the first five recognized dwarf planets are Ceres, Pluto, Eris, Makemake and Haumea. Scientists believe there may be dozens more dwarf planets awaiting discovery. Later, in 2008, the IAU announced the subcategory of dwarf planets with trans-Neptunian orbits would be known as plutoids.

It was once a planet, but is now cast off as too diminutive. In March, a NASA spacecraft will arrive there to begin the first close-up examination of a dwarf planet. It is instead Ceres, 600 miles wide, the largest of the asteroids between Mars and Jupiter. We’re going to reveal the fascinating details of a giant world of rock and ice, said Marc Rayman, the chief engineer for NASA’s Dawn spacecraft.

A dwarf planet is a planetary-mass object that is neither a true planet nor a natural satellite  . Using this parameter, Steven Soter and other astronomers argued for a distinction between planets and dwarf planets based on the inability of the latter to "clear the neighbourhood around their orbits": planets are able to remove smaller bodies near their orbits by collision, capture, or gravitational disturbance (or establish orbital resonances that prevent collisions), whereas dwarf planets lack the mass to do s.
