The IAP Lecture Series at the New York Public Library
A NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassadors Program Event
The Problem with Pluto:
The Discovery, the Debate, the Science
Free and Open to the Public
June 5, 2010, 1:00 PM
Join us for a lively discussion on the discovery of the dwarf planet Pluto, and the huge debate surrounding its demotion from full planethood and the science of the Outer Planets. We'll learn a lot about all the other planets as we strive to understand this one mysterious, icy world at the farthest reaches of the Solar System. We'll also see the latest updates from the New Horizons spacecraft as it continues its long journey to encounter this beguiling body.
After a good talk, and a flight around the Solar System with the Virtual Universe, we'll even do our own little vote....
