Planet 9In 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 RevelersThe Revelers, founding members of the Red Stick Ramblers and The Pine Leaf Boys — “unquestionably the two groups at the vanguard of the Louisiana cultural renaissance” — have joined together to form a Louisiana supergroup which combines swamp-sop, Cajun, country, blues and zydeco into a powerful tonic of roots music that could only come from southwest Louisiana.

Pride & PrejudiceAll of the wit and romance of Jane Austen's classic 1813 novel come to life in this refreshing and engaging adaptation. Finding a husband is hardly Elizabeth Bennet's most urgent priority, but her four sisters and overzealous match-making mother make it difficult to escape the subject. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her good sense. In a society where snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice?
