"it's often like bringing up politics and religion in polite conversation," said planetary geologist kirby runyon from johns hopkins university, in an email to seeker. "some planetary scientists can't understand why some of us care so much. generally, it's not discussed over a beer at a conference." but runyon does care. in fact, he's so passionate about what constitutes a planet, that he is the lead author of a new paper that p
