Pluto is a celestial object in the Cyberpunk universe, located in the Sol system.

A ball of frigid water and methane, Pluto is an eccentrically orbiting celestial object, passing inside of Neptune's orbit for part of its cycle.[1]

In terms of human colonization or use, Pluto has been deemed useless, due to solar radiation amounts. Mining is also considered a poor prospect for the object. While it may serve as a potential interstellar water fuelling point for extrasolar flights, the only considerable suggestion is using it as a cyberpsycho prison planet.[2]

  2. Deep Space sourcebook p.14: "Pluto is totally unsuitable for colonization being so far from the sun as to afford no useful amount of solar radiation. It provides little motivation for attempts to reach it even for possible mining. It may, in the future, provide a fuelling point for potential interstellar flights loading up water before leaving the solar system, but so far the only suggestion for its utilization has been as a prison planet for recalcitrant cyberpsychos. It is unlikely to become a popular holiday resort."
