The New Horizons mission launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida on January 19, 2006. Since then, NASA’s space probe has traveled a million miles a day for nearly 10 years to reach its destination, Pluto! It will gather its closest images on July 14, 2015 — the 50th Anniversary of the Mariner 4’s flyby of Mars. However, this mission will collect 5,000 times more data than the Mariner 4!
Five episodes about the New Horizons mission are now available on CuriosityStream.com and include expert interviews with principal investigator, Alan Stern. Watch Destination: Pluto, and dive deep into the #PlutoFlyby!
