By David Shiga In Neil deGrasse Tyson‘s new book The Pluto Files (read our review), he reproduces a selection of angry letters complaining about the decision to reclassify Pluto as a “dwarf planet”, rather than a true planet. Here are some of the letters he received. My name is John Glidden. I am six years old and my favorite planet is Pluto. I disagree with you that Pluto is a Kuiper Belt Object. I think Pluto is a real planet and I took a poll of 11 people. The question was, What do you think Pluto is? I think it is a double planet and everyone else thought it is a regular real planet that is very cold. I had a half day at school yesterday so my mom brought me to the Museum of Natural History and the Hayden Planetarium. I wanted to see you so I could tell you this in person. Love, John Glidden F##k Pluto, it was a sorry excuse for a planet anyhow, good riddance to bad solar trash, but now that the name is free, why not rename Uranus Pluto and get rid of all that grade school snickering. Howard Brenner Dear Mr Tyson, I think pluto is a planet. Why do you think pluto is no longer a planet? I do not like your anser!!! Pluto is my faveret planet!!! You are going to have to take all of the books away and change them. Pluto is a planet!!!!!!!! Your friend, Emerson York Dear Scientest, What do you call Pluto if its not a planet anymore? If you make it a planet again all the science books will be right. Do people live on Pluto? If there are people who live there they won’t exist. Why can’t Pluto be a planet? If it’s small doesn’t mean that it doen’t have to be a planet anymore. Some people like Pluto. If it doesn’t exist then they don’t have a favorite planet. Please write back, but not in cursive because I can’t read in cursive.
