How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming

Author Mike Brown, a Professor of Planetary Astronomy at the California Institute of Technology is probably best known for his discovery of Eris, the largest object found in the solar system in 150 years, and the object which led to the debate and the eventual demotion of Pluto from a real planet to a dwarf planet.  In Brown's book How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming, we get a glimpse into exploration, science and technology in a very readable form.

Nick Schenkel is the director of the West Lafayette Public Library, and reviews books from all walks of literature.
