Percival Lowell just knows there has to be another planet out there. All his research supports this theory, that there is something pulling on the orbits of Uranus and Neptune. After he died, his staff hired Clyde Tombaugh, who discovered there really was a ninth planet which was then named Pluto. Would Pluto remain a planet? Is it alone in its orbit? Is a spacecraft destined to touch down on Pluto in the near future? Read this amazing book that helps us understand our startlingly impressive universe a little better.
