April NSA Meeting

  • Arlington Heights Memorial Library 500 North Dunton Avenue Arlington Heights, IL, 60004 United States (map)

Professor Kevin Cole of Harper College presents "Exploring the Solar System’s Smallest Objects".  His talk will focus on encounters with a few of the smallest bodies in the solar system:  Hayabusa-2 at asteroid Ryugu; OSIRIS-Rex at asteroid Bennu; and New Horizons at Kuiper Belt Object Ultima Thule.  Professor Cole will introduce each of these missions, describe  their science objectives, and report on what these small bodies are telling us about the formation processes that occurred early in the history of the solar system.
