Tonight, an author who has fielded hate mail from third graders will be featured in a Nova documentary about one of science’s most controversial topics–the planetary status of Pluto.
Last month, we reported how astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson wrote the book, The Pluto Files: The Rise and Fall of America’s Favorite Planet. The book talks about his role in the controversial (at least among grade school kids) scientific ruling that Pluto is not a planet.
Tonight he will be featured in a Nova documentary about Pluto, and, as you can see by that video, a number of prominent journalists have some negative opinions of his work as well–including Stephen Colbert, Brian Williams, Jon Stewart, and Diane Sawyer.
