This incredible video was just released by the National Space Society as the New Horizons team is primed to receive the first wave of data from the distant Pluto system. It feels more like a movie trailer, except that it is 100% true. I was left speechless by this amazing video and you will be too.
The mission comes to a head on July 14th with the close flyby of Pluto and its five moons, though it’s possible there will be more moons discovered during the flyby. If you want the latest mission updates and to follow along, go to http://seeplutonow.com/.
I can no longer contain my excitement. Time to shine, Pluto!
