“The World of Dwarf Planets"
You didn't hear the words "dwarf planet" until 2006 when Pluto was demoted from the ranks of "planet." Now there are five official dwarf planets. What makes an object a "dwarf planet" and what do we know about them? Astronomer Jim Kaler returns to the dome to enlighten us! Hear Jim's comments on the images from Pluto, too!
