New Horizons: En Route to Pluto [Space]
posted January 15 2014 10:03.17 by spic0m




New Horizons is a NASA spacecraft on its way to the dwarf planet Pluto. It scooted by Jupiter in 2007, and will pass by Pluto in 2015 before possibly heading further into the Kuiper Belt - a massive zone of icy bodies beyond Neptune.

When the spacecraft reaches Pluto, it will be only the fifth one to head so far away from Earth (the other ones being Pioneer 10 and Pioneer 11, and Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, which now fly in the outer reaches of the solar system).
