Out of The Darkness: Pluto and the Outer Worlds

Birmingham, United Kingdom

Pluto’s discovery in 1930 seemed to be the epitome of planetary discovery in the solar system; yet it was just the beginning of a new era of planetary discovery. This presentation traces the history of the discovery of Pluto and the exploration of this distant world by the New Horizons spacecraft. Pluto’s position as a trans-Neptunian world is also examined. Illustrated with the latest images of Pluto, artwork and video; accompanied by music. Take an Odyssey into the darkness.
