New Horizons Web Site – Mission to Pluto

New Horizons Web Site

I just found out that NASA is planning a mission to Pluto – the last planet in the solar system that hasn’t been explored by a robotic mission – at least if you exlude the newly discovered 10th planet.

The mission is to be managed, among others, by the The Applied Physics Laboratory (JHUAPL) at John Hopkins University and The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), the Caltech institute, that manages most of the US robotic missions to the planets.

I found out about this, because I subscribe to the JPL newsletter.

I highly recommend the newsletter, if you’re at all interested in the robotic missions to the planets. There are frequent updates on current missions.
