In 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. But what lies beyond Pluto? Using nothing but their wits (and high-powered telescopes and a thorough understanding of orbital mechanics), astronomers are making new discoveries about how our Solar System formed and what it may be hiding. Follow Mike Brown and his team at CalTech as they uncover dwarf worlds like the remarkably bright Eris; Haumea, an egg-shaped object rotating incredibly fast; and Sedna, whose orbit takes it deep into the far reaches of the Solar System. Is there a new planet beyond these distant objects? We’ll tag along on Mike Brown’s first night searching for the ninth planet at the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii. Planet Nine collaborators Mark SubbaRao, Patrick McPike, and Mike Brown are the 2017 Vizzie award winners for People’s Choice from the National Science Foundation! This program includes a live star show.

With the ever growing awareness of the impact we have on our environment, efforts are increasing to control the damage. Islands of plastic debris, most notably the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, have been discovered in our oceans and scientists and non-profits are working tirelessly to find a way to clean them up. Jamie Justice will discuss the current state of the Great Pacific and other garbage patches and the work that is being done to prevent plastic from outnumbering the fish in the sea. Jamie Justice is the education coordinator for the Museum of Coastal Carolina and Ingram Planetarium. She received her Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology from Bowling Green State University and her Master of Science in Environmental Science with concentrations in Marine and Coastal Education and Coastal Management from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Jamie is originally from Portsmouth, Ohio and moved to Wilmington, North Carolina for graduate school in 2017. Before coming to the Museum, she has worked in a variety of educational positions at summer camps and schools. She looks forward to developing new programs and sharing her love of S.T.E.M. with the patrons of the museum.   With the ever growing awareness of the impact we have on our environment, efforts are increasing to control the damage.

In 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. But what lies beyond Pluto? Using nothing but their wits (and high-powered telescopes and a thorough understanding of orbital mechanics), astronomers are making new discoveries about how our Solar System formed and what it may be hiding. Follow Mike Brown and his team at CalTech as they uncover dwarf worlds like the remarkably bright Eris; Haumea, an egg-shaped object rotating incredibly fast; and Sedna, whose orbit takes it deep into the far reaches of the Solar System. Is there a new planet beyond these distant objects? We’ll tag along on Mike Brown’s first night searching for the ninth planet at the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii. Planet Nine collaborators Mark SubbaRao, Patrick McPike, and Mike Brown are the 2017 Vizzie award winners for People’s Choice from the National Science Foundation!

Is there a new planet beyond these distant objects? We’ll tag along on Mike Brown’s first night searching for the ninth planet at the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii. Planet Nine collaborators Mark SubbaRao, Patrick McPike, and Mike Brown are the 2017 Vizzie award winners for People’s Choice from the National Science Foundation!

Museum of Coastal Carolina

Movie: Thirst For Power (based on the book by Michael E. Webber) This documentary movie is adapted from Dr. Michael E. Webber’s book Thirst For Power. It explores our dependence on water for energy as well as the huge vulnerabilities in our current systems exacerbated by climate change. Thirst For Power traces the history of civilization’s quest to procure abundant water and energy. Filmed on location across the world, it explores the ruins of Roman aqueducts in France, the mountains and deserts of California, and the vast landscapes of Texas, as it traces the mysterious connections between water and energy. The film asks us to change the way we think about water and energy and consider how these hidden links can secure the long-term abundance of both precious resources. The film runs approximately 61 minutes. Prior to the film, the Museum’s Executive Director Terry Bryant will give a brief introduction.

Ingram Planetarium

In 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. But what lies beyond Pluto? Using nothing but their wits (and high-powered telescopes and a thorough understanding of orbital mechanics), astronomers are making new discoveries about how our Solar System formed and what it may be hiding. Follow Mike Brown and his team at CalTech as they uncover dwarf worlds like the remarkably bright Eris; Haumea, an egg-shaped object rotating incredibly fast; and Sedna, whose orbit takes it deep into the far reaches of the Solar System. Is there a new planet beyond these distant objects? We’ll tag along on Mike Brown’s first night searching for the ninth planet at the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii. Planet Nine collaborators Mark SubbaRao, Patrick McPike, and Mike Brown are the 2017 Vizzie award winners for People’s Choice from the National Science Foundation! This program includes a live star show.

In 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. But what lies beyond Pluto? Using nothing but their wits (and high-powered telescopes and a thorough understanding of orbital mechanics), astronomers are making new discoveries about how our Solar System formed and what it may be hiding. Follow Mike Brown and his team at CalTech as they uncover dwarf worlds like the remarkably bright Eris; Haumea, an egg-shaped object rotating incredibly fast; and Sedna, whose orbit takes it deep into the far reaches of the Solar System. Is there a new planet beyond these distant objects? We’ll tag along on Mike Brown’s first night searching for the ninth planet at the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii. Planet Nine collaborators Mark SubbaRao, Patrick McPike, and Mike Brown are the 2017 Vizzie award winners for People’s Choice from the National Science Foundation!
