DID PLUTO GET A RAW DEAL? CAST YOUR VOTE AND EXPLORE A SURPRISINGLY TRICKY QUESTION: IF PLUTO ISN’T A PLANET, THEN WHAT IS?

Beginning, Friday, February 16, 2018, our award-winning temporary exhibition What is a Planet? returns! If you didn’t catch it during its first run, now’s your chance to learn what really happened to Pluto and why it matters. (And maybe shed a tear or two for everyone’s favorite ex-planet.)

In 2006, the International Astronomical Union voted to reclassify Pluto as a dwarf planet. Demoting Pluto may have seemed drastic at the time, but it was not the first time astronomers reconsidered what makes a planet a planet.
