The New Horizons spacecraft
will be the first man-made object to visit our controversial
sibling planet. An Atlas V
will be used to launch the craft to the fastest speed
that man has ever hurled an object to the heavens. Due to this and the small size of Pluto
, the probe will only be capable of one flyby.
Today is the first day in the launch window
that the rocket is hoped to be launched.
