Actually, the farthest planet of the solar system Pluto has neither died nor has been destroyed. Yes, there were rumours about the death or destruction about Pluto. But the scientific truth is that, it has only been affected by depreciation and has become so little as to be categorized as a dwarf planet. So it is no more officially a planet now, but is dubbed as a dwarf or mini planet.
Many people are not aware of the fact that the planets are not all in the solar system. There are dwarf planets which are smaller than planets and bigger than asteroids. Apart from Pluto, there are at least four dwarf planets with their own moons in the solar system namely Haumea, Ceres, Makemake and Eris (moon: Dysnomia).
Since 2008, Pluto has now been degraded from the planet club to the dwarf planet club, along with all its five moons namely Charon, Nix, Hydra, S/2011 (134340) 1 (Vulcan) and S/2012 (134340) 1 (Cerberus). [In older articles you can see that Pluto has three moons which is now wrong because of the discoveries of S/2011 (134340) 1 and S/2012 (134340) 1 in the years 2011 and 2012 for which Vulcan and Cerberus are the proposed but not yet officially allotted names].
Very recently, space scientists are thinking that Pluto may have even 10 more undiscovered moons. However, this is not yet confirmed. Actually, Pluto is so bright that its moons are not visible from ground based telescopes. Again, the hypothetical moons of Pluto are so small that they are beyond the limits of the Hubble Space Telescope. Probably we have no other way to know more about Pluto and its moons until July 2015 when the proposed New Horizons mission of NASA will go very close to them.
