Last wednesday I checked out a brand new book by David Weintraub, from the Bear Canyon branch of the Tucson/Pima County Public Library. Weintraub is Professor of Astronomy at Vanderbilt University and has won their Undergraduate Teaching Excellence award. The book offers a calm and measured review of the Pluto naming controversy, in chapters 13 and 14, preceded by an absorbing account of the Kuiper family objects. The title : Is Pluto a Planet ? A Historical Journey through the Solar System. IAU, please do not vote on scientific matters. Let the long established scientific method of publication of observations and theories allow the truth to come through. Professor Weintraub's startling conclusion in page 220 : The Solar System has more than 20 planets !!! It is a good read !
