Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson is the director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City, host of Nova, and author of several books on astrophysics, including The Pluto Files. Often pointed to as the person who caused the fall of Pluto from planetary status, Dr. Tyson talks about his book, which describes the chain of events which downgraded Pluto, and the impact that it had on pop culture, which may be just as great as it was on the scientific community.


In this interview we also ask him about Manhattan Henge and talk about his interest in educating kids about science. We also discover a little something about Jupiter along the way.
