Journey to Pluto

Posted to Infographics  |  Tags: , , ,  |  Nathan Yau

The New Horizons spacecraft launched on January 19, 2006 and is set to fly by Pluto next week on July 14, 2015. The New York Times provides a short documentary on the journey and the hope for what the flyby provides.

It’s a combination of researcher interviews and scientific graphics. So good, even if you don’t follow space-related news. Set aside the 13 minutes and 21 seconds to watch the whole thing.

Then keep track of the event at NASA’s site for the mission.
