In July 2015, the New Horizons spacecraft gave us our first close look at Pluto, the most famous dwarf planet in the outskirts of our Solar System. The New Horizons flyby was big news, and the pictures it sent back to Earth reveal a world far more complex than anyone realized. Follow Mike Brown and his team at CalTech as they uncover dwarf worlds whose orbits take them deep into the far reaches of the Solar System. Is there a new planet beyond these distant objects? Join us on the hunt!
The tiny hamlet of Poor Prairie doesn’t see a lot of folks coming into town, least of all men. So when one gets off the train, everybody talks, especially the high school girls looking for a meal ticket. But this man is mysterious. A few things are clear, though – he’s teaching at the high school and he knows basketball. As for that meal ticket? He may just have that after all, if he can get his Poor Prairie girls good enough at basketball to sell a few tickets. The Tall Girls examines issues of class and gender amidst the historic 1930s Dust Bowl.
