Funsten to speak about deep space

-A A +A

LANL > ‘Beyond Pluto’ will be presented in Los Alamos Wednesday

Los Alamos National Laboratory Fellow and physicist Herb Funsten will explore the edge of the solar system and anticipate its future as it moves through our galactic neighborhood in a series of three Frontiers in Science lectures beginning Wednesday in the Duane Smith Auditorium at Los Alamos High School.
The talks, “Beyond Pluto: The Search for the Edge of the Solar System,” will focus on the heliosphere — the region of space under the Sun’s influence — that extends far beyond Pluto and forms a protective cocoon that shields us from cosmic radiation.
“In this talk, we will travel to the edge of the solar system, peer into the structure and dynamics of the outer heliosphere as it interacts with the interstellar medium, and anticipate the future of the solar system as it moves through our galactic neighborhood,” said Funsten, of Los Alamos’ Intelligence and Space Research Division.
Funsten will make two other appearances as well, those scheduled for Aug. 11 at the Museum of Natural History and Science in Albuquerque and Aug. 14. at the James A. Little Theater, on the campus of the New Mexico School for Deaf, in Santa Fe.
All Frontiers in Science talks begin at 7 p.m.
