Mike Brown, Richard and Barbara Rosenberg Professor of Planetary Astronomy

This spring, Mike Brown is teaching his course about the solar system online as a “massive open online course” (MOOC) and on campus with a small group of undergraduate students and TAs. For the first time, he’s also teaching a cohort of about 500 Caltech alumni and friends online.

This session welcomes all Seminar Day attendees, including participants in the online course, to meet up in person, hear scientific updates about the latest discoveries in the solar system, and discuss how the ways we teach science are changing with new technologies and approaches, at Caltech and online.

Among other awards and honors, Professor Brown is the recipient of the Richard P. Feynman Prize for Excellence in Teaching at Caltech, the Kavli Prize in Astrophysics, and is the author of the best-selling memoir, How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming.
