How I killed Pluto and why it had it coming?

Dr. Mike Brown of Caltech


The demotion of Pluto more than 2 years ago was the biggest and most contentious astronomy story in modern astronomical history. Astronomer Mike Brown will give the inside account on the discoveries that led to Pluto's reclassification as well as offer a new perspective on why the question of planethood matters and how the current classification scheme got it right.
