    For More Webcasts Pluto, Eris, and the Dwarf Planets
    of the Outer
    Solar SystemPresenter Mike Brown Tuesday, March 20, 2007The Kuiper
    Belt is a mysterious region beyond Neptune and stretching more than
    four billion miles from the Sun. Using powerful telescopes,
    scientists are scouring the Belt and beyond, finding hundreds of
    small frigid objects such as Eris, which is larger than Pluto and
    takes 560 years to orbit the Sun; and smaller Sedna, with an
    elliptical orbit that takes more than 10,000 years to complete. Join
    Mike Brown as he describes the hunt for these ancient and elusive
    worlds. Mike Brown is Professor of Planetary Astronomy at the
    California Institute of Technology and the discoverer, along with
    colleagues, of Eris (formerly 2003 UB313), Sedna, and other distant
    bodies. The 2007 Exploring Space Lectures, Journey Through the
    Outer Solar System, will feature four world-class scholars
    discussing current missions to the distant realm of the gas giants,
    the icy Kuiper Belt, and beyond.
