Brilliant flash of inspiration from a misread headline. The headline actually said:
Pluto demolition wonâ€™t change local display
What a plan! Solve the whole thing by busting Pluto up into little bitty chunks. For people with a decent telescope, it might even make a fireworks display of comparable size to that Euro spacecraft crashing into the moon last week.
And why not make a game of planetary billiards out of it. Pick a big near earth asteroid, say Apophis, attach a solar powered mass driver and send it through one of those Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune Star Trek inspired gravitational slingshot maneuvers. (And a day late Happy 40th Anniversary to Star Trek, by the way.) Slam it into Charon at the right angle and send Charon into a declining orbit to smash into Pluto. Either they bust into bits or they all congeal into something big enough no one can say it’s not a planet.
In the meantime, I’m a conservative so…
