Description

Talk at Cheltenham Science Festival: The Hunt for Planet 9

What is a planet? And why do we think Planet 9 is joining the ranks of our Solar System? Solar physicist Prof Lucie Green leads astronomer Prof Alan Fitzsimmons, BBC Sky at Night Producer Giles Harrison and public astronomer Marek Kukula in a discussion about the changing state of our solar system. They ponder the mysterious and as yet, hypothetical Planet 9, how it impacts on our view of the formation of the solar system and why Pluto isn’t Planet 9 any more.
