Come hear Dr. Richard Binzel, Class of 1980, talk about his work as a member of the NASA mission team that sent the first spacecraft to Pluto—the results were a surprisingly dynamic world never before revealed to human eyes. Now a Professor of Planetary Science at M.I.T., Binzel did his first research on Pluto while attending Macalester. His observations made the groundbreaking exploration to Pluto a top priority for NASA.
