After all the serious topics of this week, it felt great to take a much lighter tone with this page looking at the little planet that's no longer a planet. I looked at the size, of pluto, its distance from the sun, how it was discovered and why it's no longer a planet. In just the past few years, NASA has discovered a number of new moons around Pluto. I show those and then we take a glance at the the New Horizons space probe that will arrive there two years from now. Text by me, images from NASA, the Lowell Observatory and the AP. Aug. 23, 2013.
