Neil deGrasse Tyson

The New York Times bestseller: "You gotta learn this. it's the most enjoyable publication approximately Pluto you'll ever learn on your life." ―Jon Stewart

whilst the Rose middle for Earth and area on the American Museum of traditional historical past reclassified Pluto as an icy comet, the New York Times proclaimed on web page one, "Pluto now not a Planet? in simple terms in New York." instantly, the general public, pros, and press have been identifying aspects over Pluto's planethood. Pluto is entrenched in our cultural and emotional view of the cosmos, and Neil deGrasse Tyson, award-winning writer and director of the Rose middle, is on a quest to find why. He stood on the center of the talk over Pluto's demotion, and hence Plutophiles have freely shared their evaluations with him, together with unending hate mail from third-graders. together with his inimitable wit, Tyson promises a minihistory of planets, describes the outsized characters of the folks who learn them, and recounts how America's favourite planet used to be ousted from the cosmic hub. colour illustrations
