Determined to get to the bottom of the case (against the wishes of James and Carsely police), Agatha begins an investigation of her own.

But the larger outer planets, the gas giants, have many moons - Jupiter and Saturn leading the count with more than 60 moons each! What's more, the moons of Jupiter are not all just round, gray rocks - they are extremely varied, from volcanic Io, covered with volcanic activity; to Europa, with an icy surface covering an underground ocean; to Ganymede, a moon so large it's actually bigger than the planet Mercury! "Project Pluto" - When Mindy is excited about presenting her kid model of Pluto for school show and tell, the other kids don't want to disappoint her by breaking the news to her that Pluto is not a planet. Curriculum: Pluto is no longer considered a planet; astronomers in the scientific community re-classified Pluto as a planetoid. It is one of five "planetoids," or "dwarf planets. There are three criteria a celestial body must meet in order to be considered a planet: it must orbit the Sun, have enough mass, and "clear the neighborhood." duration 28:46   SRND51 TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)
