Over at 365DOA, I bring tales of early Pluto, the original controversy, and of things we can no longer discuss, for fear it will drive us mad. Enjoy the podcast of Plutonomicon
. Pluto is no stranger to controversy. Let us ignore the current planet/no-planet nonsense and look at the heady early years of its discovery. I found a monograph by a 1920s professor, who attempted to correlate some early ‘Planet X’ discoveries with Pluto. It being October, I thought a trip to the way-back machine would be useful in understanding just how unusual Pluto is, both now and when it was discovered. Give it a Halloween-season listen!
