The Year of the Dwarf Planets
Join retired JPL astronomer Terry Martin for a talk about some of NASA's current missions. Pluto and Ceres are two dwarf planets being visited by spacecraft this year.
Pluto is getting closer by the day as the New Horizons spacecraft, which left Earth faster than any other vehicle, at 36,000 mph, is approaching the planet for a close encounter on July 14th. Ceres was visited in a more leisurely fashion by the Dawn spacecraft, which uses a very gentle ion thruster and the philosophy ‘slow and steady gets it done’. Both of these missions are refining what we know about our smaller planetary cousins.
