The Pluto Files

In 1930, a farm boy with a passion for understanding the universe noticed a tiny dot moving across the night sky. It was at this moment Pluto was discovered, located 4 billion miles away from the Sun and cloaked in darkness Pluto is still somewhat of a mystery and up until recently our best images of it were nothing more than a blur. Even to this day many scientists still argue whether or not it is even a planet.

Pluto’s planetary status however has officially been revoked and because of this Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson who played a role in this status downgrade has received quite a but of flak from Pluto lovers the world over. In this film we see Dr. Tyson speak with some of his critics as well as discussing the history of Pluto in space.
