California Institute of Technology, EE.UU. Madrid, 19 de octubre de 2009 Pluto, called a planet for seventy-five years, is now dead, banished to the lowly status of "dwarf planet." And that's good. While astronomers argued about Pluto for most of the past decade, the final death blow came with the discovery of Eris -- an even larger body in the outer solar system. I'll discuss the story of the search for and the discovery of Eris and try to give a perspective on why the question of planethood for Pluto and for Eris matters and why, in the end, astronomers made the right decision to demote Pluto.
