When Gustav Holst finished his iconic work "The Planets" in 1917, Pluto had yet to be discovered. Six years ago, British composer Colin Matthews was commissioned to round out the set. He called his composition "Pluto, the Renewer."

In the meantime, of course, we're back to eight classical planets again. Pluto has been booted out of the planetary club. Thanks though to the New Horizons probe and it’s awe inspiring images Pluto continues to inspire.
