About the show: The New Horizons spacecraft is on approach for a dramatic flight past the icy dwarf planet and its moons in July 2015. The New Horizons mission will help us understand worlds at the edge of our solar system by making the first reconnaissance of the dwarf planet Pluto and by venturing deeper into the distant, mysterious Kuiper Belt – a relic of solar system formation. Join us as we view new pictures never before seen and brand new discoveries about the outer reaches of our solar system.

The 45-minute show is suitable for all ages and will include time for questions at the end of the presentation.
