Summary
Mike was always gazing up at the sky as a kid, wondering if there was more out there. When he grew up, he decided he wanted to discover a new planet. Instead, he made scientists decide that one of the objects they call a planet now isn't really a planet at all!
Summary
Presents the life of astronomer Mike Brown, who discovered Quaoar and Eris, two orbiting objects similar in size to Pluto, a discovery which led to a redefinition of what makes an object a planet and a removal of Pluto from the list of planets
