In the first Kavli Prize Laureate Dome Lecture, Brown, a winner of the 2012 Kavli Prize in Astrophysics, will speak at the Adler Planetarium on solar system evolution, Pluto and other "dwarf planets" and the evidence for a larger object, a potential true ninth planet, out beyond the dwarfs. The talk will be simulcast to institutions in Denver, Peoria (Riverfront Museum) and Tucson, and will be followed by a speaker reception.
