Description

Heyo, Zengineers!
This week we're wrapping up an epic three part ride through our solar system.
In part one we talked about our solar system as a whole, the earth, the moon, and the sun:

In part two we descended upon the rocky planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars):

In this third and final piece, we find our way through the asteroid belt, past Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Uranus before exploring the final reaches of our solar system with everyone's favorite dwarf planet, Pluto and its tens or maybe thousands of friends spiraling around in the icy darkness at the edges of our home space.
We hope you enjoy the convo. Support the show: http://support.zengineeringpodcast.com and visit our website for more episodes: https://zengineeringpodcast.com
