Neil deGrasse Tyson Gets Hate Mail

Photo: Emerson York

Somewhere, mixed among all the fan mail from fanboys and geek-loving girls everywhere, Neil deGrasse Tyson gets hate mail. Not just ordinary hate mail though, hate mail from kids. You see, Tyson was part of the movement at the turn of the century that excluded Pluto from a list of the planets in our solar system. Unfortunately for him, many kids had already pegged Pluto as their favorite planet and were not willing to part with it.

You can check out a full gallery of children who were disappointed in Mr. Tyson's and the Hayden Planetarium's decision here.
