I'd also like to point out that the cover photo of this book is by Arizona amateur astronomer and astrophotographer Rick Scott -- here is the photo on Rick's web site: http://members.cox.net/starscopes/space_sky/maui_4_planets_19990303.html Princeton University Press web page on the book: http://press.princeton.edu/titles/8247.html Also see the April issue of Sky & Tel (page 79) for a book review. --Joe Orman edwin hubble wrote: 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. It is a good read ! -- See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please send personal replies to the author, not the list.
