EPISODE DESCRIPTION

The Oort cloud (alternatively the Öpik–Oort cloud) is a hypothesized spherical cloud of comets which may lie roughly 50,000 AU, or nearly a light-year, from the Sun. This places the cloud at nearly a quarter of the distance to Proxima Centauri, the nearest star to the Sun. The Kuiper belt and scattered disc, the other two reservoirs of trans-Neptunian objects, are less than one thousandth the Oort cloud's distance. The outer extent of the Oort cloud defines the gravitational boundary of our Solar System.Episoded "Drafted" , Please contact DJ CH!NO to listen/download this mix. @Realdjchino on Twitter
