What is a Planet?

I produced and edited two videos for the Adler Planetarium’s exhibit, What is a Planet? The exhibition delves into how new approaches and perspectives in science can change how we define worlds near and far. The first video is a short montage of astronomers and the media reaction to Pluto’s reclassification in 2006. The second video features Adler Astronomer’s, Lucianne Walkowicz, Kristie Nault and Mark Hammergren sharing their opinions of the current definition.

“A lot of the emotions brought up by the name change is highlighted in an excellent video that cuts together all the news coverage of the reclassification that includes network news, comedians, and, of course, Neil deGrasse Tyson.” – Joel Mora, Concierge Preferred
