I’m feeling nostalgic about the solar system. Planets aren’t what they used to be — Pluto is no more.
Who says all scientists think alike and stifle dissent? This debate had all the drama and reversals of fortune of a WWE smackdown.
As I say in today’s column, as long as scientists were revising the solar system, why couldn’t they have renamed Uranus? I mean, how many more moon and probe jokes do we have to endure?
Meanwhile, Richard Crowson pondered in his editorial cartoon today (click on image to enlarge it) whether the demotion of Pluto, which was discovered by Kansan Clyde Tombaugh, was payback for our state science standards.
