Watch ‘The Pluto Files’ on NOVA
I know many of you are still fighting for Pluto (let it go, it’s over). You might find tonight’s NOVA special, The Pluto Files on PBS, helpful as you work through your loss. Host Neil deGrasse Tyson (also author of the book The Pluto Files) walks us through Pluto’s story from rise to fall.
Also at the site is:
- hate-mail from third graders,
- a name your favorite planet contest
- a place to share new ways to remember planet names.
Haven’t had enough, check out the book The Pluto Files.
By the way, I’ve heard Neil deGrasse Tyson speak several times. He is a frequent guest on shows like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. His enthusiasm is simply awe-inspiring. He is a true fighter for everything science. I recommend following everything he does.
We had a chance to meet and later interview Neil deGrasse Tyson for episode 32 last May. He talked about science literacy and other science education matters; his comments on grades really struck a cord with me.
