Next Public Show — Wednesday, August 9, 2017
Topic:Distant Worlds in the Solar System
Introduction: Have you ever wondered where comets come from, why Pluto is a dwarf planet, and whether there really is a "Planet Nine" in our midst? Join us on our journey beyond Pluto, and explore the icy bodies of the Kuiper belt and the Oort cloud. We will also cover the recent (and exciting!) proposal that there might be a " Planet Nine" in the outer solar system on the verge of discovery.
