Michael E. Brown, who led the team that discovered Planet X alias Xena alias Eris (and the moon Gabrielle alias Shamlicht alias Dysnomia).

Michael E. Brown and Robert Shea were both admitted to the Order of the Pineapple on 18 January 2020.

Background[]

Michael E. Brown, professor at Caltech, led the team that discovered Planet X (name of the SubGenius world). He helped get it nicknamed Xena and later named Eris as part of "The Jake That Changed a World campaign" led by Discordians/Erisians. He wrote about it in How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming, in imitation of the Principia Discordia subheading How I Found Goddess And What I Did To Her When I Found Her.

Acceptance[]

'Dear OPs: I am delighted to be accepted into your midst, but, more importantly, I am delighted that Eris of the outer solar system, the most massive dwarf planet yet known, gets such a recognition. I would be remiss to not also point out the important role of the moon of Eris, named after Dysnomia, who is a daughter of Eris and also the daemon spirit of lawlessness. I accept this high honor in their name."
