Pluto. Are you over it? ‘Cause we’re not, and neither is PBS Digital Studios. Earthlings’ first mission to Pluto provided us with beautiful and fascinating images of the dwarf planet, and we’re still learning more and more about it. Since New Horizons flew by Pluto on July 14, 2015, it’s completely redefined what we know about the dwarf planet and its largest moon Charon. New Horizons’ mission will continue to be full of surprises, but here’s a roundup of what we’ve learned so far, from It’s Okay To Be Smart:
Our other recommendation from PBS Digital Studios this week isn’t one video — it’s a bunch of them. A whole channel, really. First Person is a digital series from WNET, New York Public Media, addressing gender identity, sexuality and queer community. In this week’s episode, host Kristin Russo talks with Kara Kratcha, a student of English literature and writer who identifies as grey ace (asexual) and genderqueer.
We recommend watching all of First Person’s videos — they address a range of topics like gender binary, coming out in sports and more issues and topics that members of the LGBTQ community deal with every day. Click here to subscribe.
