Did you know that the New Horizons space probe has maneuvered to get ready to do a flyby of 2014 MU69? If not, I’m not surprised, because this will be in the Kuiper Belt and it will not occur until 31 December 2018 or 1 January 2019.
Did you even remember that New Horizons was launched from Cape Canaveral on January 19, 2006? (I admit that I was unaware of this, which is probably because it was ‘before my time’… I might be a senior cat, but I’m certainly not over 11 years old!)
Since it’s launch, New Horizons has been busy. Thus far, it has done a flybys of Jupiter and Pluto. (That video clip I shared of Pluto was taken by it.) And now, New Horizons is heading for the Kuiper belt!
I discovered the flight path clip, below on Google+.
Keep an eye on the sky, dear furiends!
