The destinations of New Horizons, a spacecraft launched in 2006, are more distant than any other yet explored. Its dramatic flyby of Pluto in 2015 revealed fabulous landscapes, a remarkable atmosphere, and a family of frigid moons. It kept moving onward for a billion miles. On New Year's Day 2019, New Horizons encountered the tiny asteroid-like object 2014 MU69, a frozen body that's been dubbed "Ultima Thule." At the edge of the Solar System, for years to come, the NASA mission will continue through a region known as the Kuiper Belt. With William Higgins. Registration required.Click here for a map!
