Exploring the Pluto Debate
Tim ran across "The Case for Pluto" by Alan Boyle at a rummage sale recently and started reading it aloud to N. today. N. was very excited about it, telling me all about it when I came home from work. Written by a journalist, it seems quite accessible and engaging, at least for this child listener. Maybe after this they should take a look at Neil DeGrasse Tyson's "The Pluto Files," which I believe also accounts for the controversy surrounding Pluto's reclassification but (unlike Boyle) defends its demotion.
