    The solar system most of us grew up with included nine planets, with Mercury closest to the sun and Pluto at the outer edge. Then, in 2005, astronomer Mike Brown made the discovery of a lifetime: a 10th planet, Eris, slightly bigger than Pluto. But instead of its resulting in one more planet being added to our solar system, Brown's find ignited a firestorm of controversy that riled the usually sedate world of astronomy and launched him into the public eye.

    Rickapolis says: "Informative and fun"
    "Very interesting account of the demise of Pluto."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have been recommending this audio book to people. It gives a good look at the science behind why Pluto was "demoted." So many people allow their personal feelings to justify their stance with this subject and Mike Brown does a great job really explaining why everything happened.


    Any additional comments?

    This story is very well written and well performed. It was easy to listen to and follow. Mike Brown did a very good job describing the reasons behind Pluto becoming a dwarf planet. He had the potential to gain a lot by Pluto staying a planet so it really says something to me that he was willing to stand on the other side and agree that it really shouldn't be a full fledged planet.
