Planet Nine

Explore the dwarf planet Pluto and its neighbours in the Kuiper belt as we search for a true Ninth Planet.

Follow planetary scientist Mike Brown and his team at CalTech as they uncover new and alien worlds, as different from each other as they are to the Earth. Meet the remarkably bright Eris, the spinning egg Haumea, and Sedna, whose orbit takes it deep into the far reaches of the Solar System. Using nothing but their wits (and high-powered telescopes), intrepid scientists are uncovering hidden secrets about how our Solar System formed—and what it may still be hiding.

Join us on the hunt for our Solar System’s Ninth Planet, in the Scitech Planetarium!
