Current in Space
Just as we’re learning more about our solar system’s own Kuiper Belt, we’re also discovering that extrasolar systems may harbour similar structures. Dave helps us understand just where such disks may originate. And while it may be just a little world, Anuj tells us dwarf planet Pluto has a surprisingly complex inner (and surface) life.
