Orbits are Odd: Crash Course Kids #22.2

Last week we talked about the orbits of the Earth and our Moon. But today we’re going to go a little bigger… well, a lot better. Did you know that there is a massive Black Hole at the center of our Galaxy? Or that Pluto’s orbit is really… weird? Today, Sabrina talks about these things and more on Crash Course Kids.
