Pluto: Planet or Not?

July 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Virtual Event

Learn about Pluto’s five moons and the 2015 New Horizons flyby from University of Maryland professor Douglas Hamilton. Discovered as the ninth planet in 1930, Pluto was re-classified as a dwarf planet in 2006. The largest of the dwarf plants, the Horizon flyby taught us a lot about our distant neighbor and its moons, four of which were discovered between 2005 and 2012.   Click Here For Information About Other Corridor Conversations Events.
