Intro Astronomy 2014. Class 10: Trans Neptunian Objects including Pluto, KBOs, Comets
In my tenth class of my Introduction to Planetary Science and Astronomy class at CSUDH, I explain Transneptunian Objects (TNOs) beginning with the Pluto System and moving outward. The video is below. For more information about the class, see my class page, http://planetary.org/bettsclass
This lecture covers Transneptunian Objects (TNOs) including the Pluto System, Eris, Kuiper Belt Objects, Comets, and the Oort Cloud, and also covers the solar wind, aurorae, and the heliosphere. Recorded at California State University Dominguez Hills.
In the next class, I will cover extrasolar planets and the formation of the solar system.
