No life detected? What about Earth?
Thats enough for me. The Universe is full of life.
If I was Intergalactic Johnny apple seed, I'd ignore all the lifeless bits of rock and sow the "goldilocks zone" planets. Billions of those around somewhere.
Why bother with lifeless frozen rock? It would be a waste of precious seed.

Pluto is planet so. What do you expect. Not an huge asteroid or dwarf something . Who says planets have to be big and close to the sun.... As long as its something that goes around it is a planet.
This simulated flyover of Pluto’s Norgay Montes (Norgay Mountains) and Sputnik Planum (Sputnik Plain) was created from New Horizons closest-approach images. Norgay Montes have been informally named for Tenzing Norgay, one of the first two humans to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Sputnik Planum is informally named for Earth’s first artificial satellite. The images were acquired by the Long Range Reconnaissance Imager
