NASA's New Horizons probe is about to wake up from a long slumber and get ready for its highly anticipated Pluto flyby next summer. New Horizons is scheduled to emerge from a 99-day hibernation on Dec. 6, then gear up for a six-month Pluto encounter that peaks with the first-ever close flyby of the mysterious dwarf planet on July 14, 2015.

Auf dem Weg zum Pluto hat „New Horizons“ rund fünf Milliarden Kilometer zurückgelegt und ist an Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Jupiter und Neptun vorbeigeflogen.
