New Horizons Media Page
The fastest spacecraft ever launched, New Horizons has traveled more time and distance – more than nine years and three billion miles -- than any space mission in history to reach Pluto. Its flyby of Pluto and Pluto’s system of at least five moons on July 14 will complete the initial exploration of the classical solar system while opening the door to an entirely new realm of mysterious small planets and planetary building blocks in the Kuiper Belt.
