The Year of Pluto - New Horizons Documentary Brings Humanity Closer to the Edge of the Solar System

    New Horizons is the first mission to the Kuiper Belt, a gigantic zone of icy bodies and mysterious small objects orbiting beyond Neptune. This region also is known as the “third” zone of our solar system, beyond the inner rocky planets and outer gas giants. Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Maryland, designed, built and operates the New Horizons spacecraft, and manages the mission for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. The Year of Pluto - NASA New Horizons is a one hour documentary which takes on the hard science and gives us answers to how the mission came about and why it matters. Interviews with Dr. James Green, John Spencer, Fran Bagenal, Mark Showalter and others share how New Horizons will answer many questions. New Horizons is part of the New Frontiers Program, managed by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

If you attempt to Navigate a Space Vehicle like this one to fly at precise speeds and VERY precise trajectories to use the associated G forces provided by Jupiter and THEN to actually rendezvous with Pluto so precisely is a "Math Problem" that no one man could possibly do.  It must have taken a Team of PhD's with Mathematics and Physics' Degrees just to do the Navigation alone.  I honestly think that the Navigation was harder than designing and building the actual Craft.  Mankind is truly amazing!  99.99% of Men and Women couldn't even comprehend the Mathematics of such a precise Navigational Problem.  Imagine if YOUR Math Professor assigned you a weekend homework problem to send a craft to one of the Moons of Saturn!  Incredible Mathematics and mind numbing to the average Human...

Being an American "child of the 50's" I think I was born at the perfect time!  Sputnik went up the month before I was born and I followed the Astronauts and their Missions throughout Childhood, culminating with the Moon Landings when I was 12.  Now I've worked for an Aerospace plant for 35+ years and our Company has had parts on ALL space missions from Mercury Program through every Shuttle Mission.  As for Space Exploration I may have been born at the best times we may ever see, even if we go "Inter-Stellar" after I'm gone.  I hope to live long enough for us to fully explore the Oort Cloud which will be terrific compared to Pluto "being the edge of the Solar System" when I was born.  Thanks to NASA and ALL Nations with Space Programs!!

this video, with a hype, has what people are looking. entertainment and information, plus engineering, lots of it.  and the interesting part is, that among the most viewed, longer than 1hr videos, the top ones about space are about the mysticism we want to believe, the unknown, the conspiracy, not the real deal.  so, im gonna close my previous questions, saying that, yes we look for what our imagination wants, not what we are doing to achieve it, yet, one thing leads to another, so yes in the end, it's all relative.

Why no stars, they would be on any raw image that had the very dim Pluto illuminated enough to see detail, even if they were blurred or streaky, or incoherent parts of a composite photo, or they distracted from the view of Pluto- they would be on the raw images and they would be of interest to the public, if NASA had them surely they would show them.

Physics and science is God's creation, big bang and evolution is mans and satans. The universe is finite just like all physical creation. There are three heavens, the earths atmosphere, the universe, and God's dwelling place beyond space a spiritual realm. You will save trillions of dollars, and eternity separated from God, if you just read and believe the word of God. You worship his creation not the creator just as he said you would. I am amazed at mans achievements, I am saddened by who they give the credit to. BY the By, all creations is moved, held together, and achieved by electro magnetism, not gravity, gravity is a small weak force by product of electro magnetism. just a heads up of a believer in God not man.

Pluto's "heart" appears to be an impact event that melted the surrounding ice and the liquid encircled the mountains. Some areas look like the jumbled icebergs of Europa. Marks described as possibly caused by wind appear to be flow patterns- in the direction of flow. The hexagonal plains could be freezing patterns in the once melted water.  The mountains may be actual pieces of the impactor that floated into their current positions-made easier by the low gravity. Ice "asteroids" or a comet ? The impact appears to be low speed but fast enough to cause melting. Maybe there's also  a layer of semi - liquid water near Pluto's surface.  Finally there appears to be "rays" emanating from the impact point.,
