Passport To Pluto
Of all the planets in the Universe, it is apparently only Pluto that remains unexplored. Now that it has been downgraded from being considered a planet, NASA is setting its sights on a mission to this site.
The mission is the most ambitious to date and actually involves seventeen years of planning (and counting). NASA is reportedly going to use its most powerful rocket ship for this. It’s also considered the fastest rocket that will be launched in outer space.
The mission is dubbed “New Horizons” and if all will be well, this is expected to culminate in the year 2015. As of February of 2012, the space craft’s distance from was measured at 10 AU.
Originally, New Horizons was supposed to go on a mission to see if there were any unexplored planets around us. It was launched in 2006, when Pluto was still regarded as a planet and is now called a dwarf. On its launched it quickly sent photos of Pluto and its moon, the Chiron to NASA.
What will the New Horizons bring to us from beyond million miles away? Will the discoveries be enough to consider Pluto a planet, yet again?Published on October 31, 2009 · Filed under: Astronomy, Space
