Why does Pluto's planetary symbol look this way?
The symbol is in the shape of a merged "P" and "L", designed to be a monogram for Pluto and Percival Lowell
What do we mean by "Home of Pluto"?
Pluto was discovered at Lowell Observatory by Clyde Tombaugh on February 18th, 1930.
Does Lowell Observatory astronomers still research Pluto?
Sure! Will Grundy is a co-investigator on NASA’s New Horizons mission that encountered the Pluto system for the first time in 2015. He heads the mission’s surface composition science theme team, working to learn more about the dwarf planet's makeup.
