New discoveries in the Solar System

Dr John Wilkinson

ASV, BDAS

During the past year there have been some amazing discoveries made via space probes about the objects in the solar system. For example the New Horizons probe to the Pluto system, the Rosetta probe to a comet and the Dawn probe to the asteroid Ceres. As a result our knowledge and understandings of these solar system objects has changed. This presentation will outline some of these findings using the latest NASA data and images.
