Programming Note: The Pluto Files

This is just a brief note to advertise this evening's edition of NOVA on public television here in the U.S. The show is "The Pluto Files" and is hosted by former Planetary Society president Neil DeGrasse Tyson. I was shipped an advance copy of the show to review but ran out of time to watch it before I left for Texas! I know that numerous Pluto researchers were filmed for it, and it's clear they roped in numerous celebrities as well, including Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Before you roll your eyes at that, I feel I should say that Stewart and Colbert do more and better coverage of space science on their satirical news shows than the "real" media do. Colbert especially is clearly a huge fan of space exploration and frequently mentions the goings-on of space missions both human and robotic in his roundups of the news at the top of his shows. Below is a little taste of the show from YouTube, and here's the show's website.
