The First Planetary
On July 14, 2015, the U.S. made history — completing the initial reconnaissance of the classical solar system by exploring Pluto with New Horizons. The New Horizons spacecraft traveled more time and distance — 9 years and 3 billion miles — than any space mission in history to reach its target, providing humanity’s first close views of Pluto and opening the door to a new region of mysterious small worlds in the Kuiper Belt.
