When stars die, they leave behind white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes. How big is a white “dwarf” and can a star really be made out of neutrons? Is it true that black holes suck up everything around them like big cosmic vacuum cleaners? This month’s shows focuses on these exotic stellar remnants.
The New Horizons mission was the first spacecraft to reach Pluto, making its closest approach to the dwarf planet in July 2015. Incredible new data has been beaming back to Earth ever since. Join us to learn the latest about Pluto and its moons!
