2. Who Said Pluto Wasn’t a Planet?

In 2006, there was a controversial statement denouncing Pluto as a planet. This came as a shock to most people, and it was met with criticism, despite being a statement by a professor of astronomy. That professor's name was Dr. Mike Brown who soon became known as "The Man Who Killed Pluto." He's aware of the public's sentimentality towards the reclassified dwarf planet but stands by everything he said.
