I guess I’m one of those who wishes that Pluto was still a planet (and not a dwarf planet). Over the last couple of days, I’ve seen the pictures of Pluto and it’s moon Charon. They really are amazing.

Tonight I watched the Chasing Pluto show on at PBS, talking about the New Horizons spacecrafts journey from Earth to Pluto.Then I watched a video over at Grist entitled “Watch Neil deGrasse Tyson and Stephen Colbert fight about planets“.

Good stuff and I think Neil deGrasse Tyson is a great scientist but I still consider Pluto a planet. I guess I’m old school.
