Edwin Rod
 

Hi everyone

 

Another busy month and here in New Zealand things seem to be getting back to life as normal and were looking at moving down to level 1 next month.

Lots of interesting research this month, from a looking at the outer solar system small objects to research on the proposed “Planet 9”. Again there is some interesting ones looking at exo planets and solar system dynamics.

Anyway I’ll leave you all to read the ones that interest you most

Cheers Edwin
