Summary
In July 2015, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft flew past Pluto after a 91⁄2-year-flight. But really this historic encounter was 85 years in the making, ever since 24-year-old Clyde Tombaugh discovered this enigmatic body at the edge of our planetary system. Today we realize that Pluto is among the largest objects in the Kuiper Belt, even though initially it was believed to be a body perhaps as massive as Earth. Join veteran space-science reporter Kelly Beatty as he traces the history of Pluto — from predictions of its existence to the discovery of its moons to its “demotion” to dwarf-planet status. Then take a tour of what New Horizons has revealed about Pluto and Charon — truly the “odd couple” of our solar system
