Pluto just got denied planetary status AGAINS

Way over yonder in Berlin, Germany, the annual festival of media art and digital culture known as "transmediale" is just getting underway. This year's theme: BWPWAP (Back When Pluto Was a Planet).

Mike Brown, the astronomer who killed Pluto, was invited to speak at the festival's opening ceremony, which included a debate over Pluto's demotion and a vote to reinstate its planetary status. Brown, of course, accepted, and has been documenting the festival on twitter.

Here's where the festival is going down:
