Dear Cosmonauts, Moon Walkers, and Terrestrial Beings of all sorts,
It is our pleasure to invite you to join us in observing a performance welcoming Planet Nine. Planet Nine is an illusive hypothetical planet in the far outer reaches of our solar system beyond Neptune. Julie Malen and Carli Holcomb have combined three Art Foundation Space Research classes, to perform for the unseen, yet massive primordial planet. The performance envisions a post-discovery future.
