Notes from Planet X: pt. 1

"When your reasons for believing something are justified ad hoc, you are left susceptible to further discoveries undermining the rationale for that belief."
-- Neil deGrasse Tyson, "The Pluto Files," pg 51.

I've scheduled some additional quotes that struck my fancy from The Pluto Files for the next few days -- quotes that are not necessarily about what they're about, I'm thinking.

I always find it cool when popularizers and popular authors sneak teaching in under the radar, teaching rather farther reaching than perhaps the subject at hand.
