Masao Sako will
discuss his research on searching for new orbits in the solar system. He
will describe efforts to discover objects beyond the orbit of Neptune, some of
which contain valuable information about the complicated dynamical history of
the system. Dr. Sako will also discuss why astronomers think that there
is a massive previously-unseen planet out there, called Planet nine, and how it
might be found.
