New Horizons

A Proposed NASA mission to explore the Pluto–Charon system and the objects of the Edgworth-Kuiper Belt. A launch date of Jan. 11 2006 would allow such a mission to benefit from a gravity assist from Jupiter in 2010 and arrive at the Pluto–Charon system by 2015. But much depends on whether the tight construction schedule can be kept.
