Neil deGrasse Tyson: The Pluto Files

Neil deGrasse Tyson: The Pluto Files

Astrophysicist Neil de Grasse Tyson talks about his latest book, "The Pluto Files," in a conversation with Dr. Laura Danly. This program was recorded in collaboration with the Los Angeles Public Library, in Los Angeles, CA, on February 4, 2009.

Neil deGrasse Tyson, the bestselling author and director of the world-famous Hayden Planetarium, chronicles America's irrational love affair with Pluto, man's best celestial friend.

Dr. Laura Danly is Curator at the Griffith Observatory, where she develops all educational, theatrical, gallery, and telescope programs. She holds a Ph.D. in Astronomy, and is a spectroscopist specializing in ultraviolet observations from space satellites.
