Overview

NOVA: The Pluto Files

Explore the controversy surrounding the farthest rock from the sun in this documentary from director Neil deGrasse Tyson. The author of the book "-The Pluto Files, Tyson realized that distant orbiting rock held a special place in the hearts of schoolchildren across the nation when the American Museum of Natural History's Hayden Planetarium rescinded Pluto's planetary status, and caused an uproar amongst pint-sized astronomers. By reexamining the discovery of Pluto and exploring the enigmatic Kuiper belt at the edge of our solar system, Tyson gives us the unique opportunity to look at the cosmos in a whole new light. Conversations with scientists and space enthusiasts reveal just how passionate some earthlings can get when it comes to reclassifying long-established heavenly bodies.
