beer and the guy that killed Pluto

YBW and I enjoyed the gorgeous spring weather on Tuesday this week. We were headed into DC to a lecture at the Air and Space Museum.

I had to zip into Falls Church to pick up more chalk paint on the way, so we stopped at Mad Fox Brewing Company for a nibble before we went downtown.

YBW had a kick ass burger and I had a crab cake with our Tori’s Rockstar Irish Red Ale. It was really breezy, but warm enough to make it worth eating outside.

You may not know this, but Pluto is (has always been) my favorite planet. I think it stems from watching Schoolhouse Rock as a kid.

Anyway, turns out that this Mike Brown from Caltech is the guy that “killed Pluto”.

Ah hell nah!
I mean his freaking twitter handle is @plutokiller for crying out loud.
I’m feeling the desire to stab rising up in me…

Well, as it turns out, the killer of my beloved Pluto gives a pretty decent talk about his search for the “new” ninth planet.

With some pretty cool visuals.

Far be it from me to promote the guy that kicked my Pluto out of the planets…but he was pretty good. So, if you’re interested in his talk you can see it here.
