Our live conversation about “Planet 9” and the amazing diversity of our solar system, featuring Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown of Caltech, Senior Editor Emily Lakdawalla, Bill Nye the Science Guy and Cassini Project Scientist Linda Spilker. We close with a special K9 edition of What’s Up!
This week's grand prize is a lovely Planetary Radio t-shirt, a 200-point iTelescope.net astronomy account, and a signed copy of Bill Nye’s “Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World.” Runners-up may receive a Planetary Society rubber asteroid.
This week's question:
We want to honor Laika the dog by turning her name into a space acronym. What should LAIKA stand for? It could be a spacecraft, an instrument, a type of planetary feature...you name it. Winners will be picked based on evaluation of your entry’s creativity, humor or both.
