[ # ] Stephen Colbert defends Pluto to Neil deGrasse Tyson
July 14th, 2015 under NASA, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Stephen Colbert

Today was a big day for Pluto because NASA’s New Horizon was able to transmit images of the planet and her moon. While you and I call her planet, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Director of the Hayden Planetarium, calls her a Dwarf Planet.
Since today was her big day, Stephen Colbert thought she needed some defending. Even though his Late Show doesn’t debut on CBS until September 8th, he still interviewed the Pluto naysayer.
Was he able to convince him? I think he got him to consider adding a 9th planet to his tie, don’t you?
I would write more about their conversation, but even though Tyson and I went to same Junior High School, I have no idea what he is talking about. He went to Harvard and I went to the Harvard of the South, University of Miami. The only planet we studied there was the sun because we worshiped her. I bet you are going to go all Neil deGrasse Tyson and tell me that the sun is not a planet.
