Mach 33: "Planet Between the Stars"
by Hillary Bhaskaran and Gerald Pops
A staged reading of a play in verse about the eccentric search for Pluto.
In "Planet Between the Stars," historical fiction combines with astronomical fantasy to bring Pluto's epic discovery to life. Over the course of a century, five uncommon characters struggle to overleap obstacles both human and scientific. Even in the face of death, nothing stops the search for truth when planets and passions align.

MACH 33: The Festival of New Science-Driven Plays at Caltech
MACH 33 fosters compelling conversations about scientific, mathematical, and technological questions by staging readings of new, unpublished plays by Los Angeles-area and Caltech/JPL playwrights. The plays in the festival offer stories that capture our imagination and ignite our curiosity about science.
The readings—by casts including Caltech students, faculty, staff, and other members of the Caltech/JPL/Huntington Library community—are open to the public and include post-show discussions with the playwrights.
