This week's Free story comes from the "Fifty Stories for Fifty States" Collection It's called "Arizona; Looking for Planet X" Wealthy businessman, mathematician, and author Percival Lowell, dedicated the last years of his life and most of his personal riches to one mission: to find the mysterious “Planet X” — the supposed ninth planet in the solar system. His singular focus created the facility and calculations that would accomplish this goal, but it was the diligence and can-do practicality of a Kansas farm boy who would actually make Lowell’s dream come true.
