Science Cafe: Exploring the Solar System
NASA prepares to lasso a piece of an asteroid, we've landed a probe on a comet and we're about to find out if Pluto is ready for its close-up. Monday, on a Science Café edition of The Sound of Ideas we'll sample the latest discoveries in our cosmic back yard; with more to come as one probe nears Pluto and another orbits Ceres, the 800-pound gorilla of the asteroid belt. New Horizons and astounding new science. Join host Mike McIntyre Monday morning at 9:00 for The Sound of Ideas.
