July 14 – New Horizons at Pluto
NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft is scheduled to arrive at the dwarf planet Pluto after a nine-and-a-half-year journey. Launched on January 19, 2006, New Horizons will be the first spacecraft to visit Pluto. It will give us our first close-up view of the dwarf planet and its moons. After passing Pluto, the spacecraft will continue on to the Kuiper belt at the edge of the Solar System. Reference
