3. Why Pluto?

According to the NASA web portal, Pluto considered for studying the Pluto atmosphere, moons and Kuiper belt. New definition of planets announced by the international astronomical union in 2005 neglected Pluto as a planet. This announcement was made after the discovery of Eris in Kuiper belt.
