"Reaching the Outer Limits: The Exploration of the Solar System"
A Presentation by 
Professor Gary DeLeo, Lehigh University Dept. of Physics

Gary DeLeo 


Spaceships from Planet Earth have been cruising through our solar system for the past half century. Some carry people, like the space shuttle and the mighty Saturn V rockets that transported humans on their two hundred and forty thousand mile journeys to the surface of the Moon. Others, carrying robotic eyes and powerful instruments, have explored all the planets in our solar system out to Neptune, two and a half billion miles away, and even Pluto. Some have visited asteroids, comets, and the moons of other planets. How did we get to the Moon, and what did we find there? What is it like on the other planets, and is there life? To find out, you must participate in this great LVAAS adventure. Only then can you experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner planets to the Outer Limits of our solar system!
