Frozen Worlds in the Dark

27173

With Mark Bailey

Take a look at what we presently know of the coldest, most distant worlds and worldlettes in the Solar System. Starting with a brief overview of Uranus and Neptune, we will also look at the New Horizons mission to Pluto and beyond. Is there really another large world lurking in the dark out there? Why is it so difficult to find these things?
