All nine planets of our solar system are now explored. Pluto was reclassified as a dwarf planet in 2006, but thanks to New Horizons' pictures, that might be reconsidered.

Laurel, Maryland, July 14 (ANI): The New Horizons spacecraft sailed past distant Pluto on Tuesday (July 14), capping a reconnaissance of the solar system that began 50 years ago, NASA said. The flyby, which occurred at around 5.19pm IST (Indian standard Time) culminated a 4.88 billion km, 9 Â½ year journey to the solar system's backyard, a region beyond Neptune called the Kuiper Belt which was discovered in 1992. New Horizon measurements have reportedly revealed that Pluto is roughly two-thirds the size of the moon, and probably holds more ice beneath its surface than previously thought. The spacecraft is so far from Earth that radio signals, traveling at the speed of light, take about 4 Â½ hours to reach Earth.
