Caption: New Horizons spacecraft at Pluto. Computer illustration of NASA's New Horizons spacecraft over the icy surface of Pluto. New Horizons launched from Earth on 19th January 2006 and took 9 years to reach the dwarf planet Pluto, arriving mid-2015. It will spend 15 months studying the dwarf planet, using cameras and scientific equipment to gather data, sending it back to Earth with the large (2.1-metre) dish antenna (white). New Horizons will also travel beyond Pluto to study other objects in the Kuiper Belt.
