Among the planets and far beyond are small worlds that hold clues to the formation of our solar system. NASA's robotic spacecraft allow us to visit comets, asteroids, and dwarf planets up close. We are just beginning to figure out what these places are like, what they are made of, and how they formed.
This is a free event; no tickets or reservations are required.
About the SeriesThe Theodore von Kármán Lecture Series, named after JPL's founder, and presented by JPL's Office of Communication and Education, brings the excitement of the space program's missions, instruments and other technologies to both JPL employees and the local community. Lectures take place twice per month, on consecutive Thursdays and Fridays. The Thursday lectures take place in JPL's Theodore von Kármán Auditorium and are streamed live via Ustream, and Friday lectures take place in Caltech's Ramo Auditorium. Both start at 7:00 p.m. Admission and parking are free for all lectures. No reservations are required, but seating is limited. Caltech manages JPL for NASA.
