Child Activists

A 7 years old boy noticed something nobody else noticed and he did something about it.
This is great!

The American Museum of Natural History opened its new Rose Center for Earth and Space on February 19, 2000. A month later, Neil received this letter from a perceptive seven-year-old named Will Galmot, who had noticed Pluto's conspicuous absence from the exhibit area featuring models of the planets. He was the first person to write about the matter, which would otherwise remain out of the limelight for almost a year.

In case Neil and his colleagues needed assistance to make a model of Pluto, Will provided a drawing.

Additional letters from children, all in regards to Pluto's classification, can be found here.
