Hello Solar System - What on Earth Are They Doing to Poor Pluto? - and welcome to Episode 17 of Light On Light Through, where we consider the semantic fate of Pluto, standing vigil at the edge of our solar system, recently demoted to dwarf-planet status by the International Astronomical Union... Who should decide the status of Pluto: scientists in disagreement among themselves, or humanity?
Michael Burstein joins me for an interview. He is an award-winning short story science fiction writer, a former secondary school science teacher, and head of the Pluto Is A Planet organization.
You'll also hear a few bars of Alpha Centauri, a song written in March 2000 by Pete Rosenthal and me.
