REVIEW FOR AT THE EDGE OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM - LECTURE BY ALAIN DORESSOUNDIRAM
Pluto is out but its neighbourhood isn't. Here's a lecture on what lurks beyond the beyond.
Alliance Francaise is organising a lecture on the topic of 'At The Edge Of The Solar System' by Alain Doressoundiram, on 7th July, at the Birla Science Centre, Birla Planeterium.
Trans-Neptunian Objects are small icy bodies that are remnants from the age of the early formation of the solar system. Their study has now become one of the most active branches of planetology.
What we are finding beyond the orbit of Neptune is providing us, little by little, with the key to subjects as diverse and fundamental as the troubled history of the the solar system, its 'architecture', the origin of comets, and even the formation of lunar craters.
Born in 1968, Alain Doressoundiram is an astronomer at the Observatory Of Paris, LESIA. He has a Ph.D in Astrophysics from the University Of Pierre Et Marie Curie (1997), Paris.
Entry is free for everyone. Please contact Alliance Francaise at 2770-0734 for further details.
