PENN SCIENCE CAFÉ- "Unseen Objects in Our Solar System"
Masao Sako, associate professor in the Department of Physics & Astronomy, School of Arts & Sciences

"Unseen Objects in Our Solar System”

Masao Sako will discuss his research on searching for new objects in the solar system. He will describe efforts to discover objects beyond the orbit of Neptune, some of which contain valuable information about the complicated dynamical history of the system. Dr. Sako will also discuss why astronomers think that there is a massive previously-unseen planet out there, called Planet Nine, and how it might be found.
