Science on Tap!

Dr. Tyler Mitchell from the HSU Physics and Astronomy Department will give an informal lecture entitled:

"New Horizons: The First Mission to the Pluto System and the Kuiper Belt"

This summer, after a more than nine year journey, the New Horizons spacecraft finally reached its destination, Pluto. Despite being so well-known, Pluto is only one of approximately 1000 known objects which inhabit this part of the solar system, the Kuiper Belt. The Kuiper belt is a vast reservoir of small icy bodies and the source of the so called Jupiter-Family comets. The icy bodies in the Kuiper Belt formed at a very early time in our solar system’s history and are believed to have remained unchanged since then. By studying their composition and dynamical behavior, we can learn a lot about how our solar system formed and the processes which shaped it.
My talk will include some of the historical context of Pluto and the Kuiper belt, including their discovery and the recent reclassification of Pluto. I’ll discuss what can be learned by studying the objects and structures in the outer solar system, and the impact this may have on the current theories of solar system formation. Finally, I’ll present some of the latest results from the New Horizons mission and discuss what these results are telling us. In the process I hope to answer any questions you might have about the New Horizons mission and/or the outer solar system.
