New Horizons was launched on 19th January, 2006 with its closest approach to Pluto on 14th July, 2015, a journey of around 6 billion kilometres. This was the first time a spacecraft from Earth visited the dwarf planet since its discovery in 1930. The spacecraft is comparable in size to a grand piano, with a 2.1m radio antenna dish. Following its 15 months studying Pluto, New Horizons will continue to the Kuiper Belt, around 1.6 billion kilometres further out than Neptune.
