Last night during the Q&A following astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson's speech to The Commonwealth Club of California in our San Francisco headquarters, moderator (and "Eye on the Bay" host) Brian Hackney asked Tyson about a possible contradiction in Tyson's famous position on whether Pluto should be classified as a planet.
