The Mission to Pluto #Infographic

We know very little about the “planet” Pluto because it’s (usually) the furthest planet from us. NASA has the New Horizons mission that has been heading out to study the tiny planet for a while. Now, it’s getting close enough to make it infographic-worthy!

Jupiter is to thank for this. During its pass, the probe used Jupiter’s gravity to give it a velocity boost, giving it the juice to reach Pluto in 2019 rather than 2036 had it not taken a Jupiter-boost.

In this infographic by Space.com, they tell more details about the New Horizons mission.
