New Horizons: Fastest Spacecraft Ever Created to Explore Pluto

The fastest spacecraft ever created, NASA's New Horizons will speed past Pluto on July 14, 2015 - 50 years to the day after humans first explored Mars with NASA's Mariner 4 on July 14, 1965. The new spacecraft will beam back high resolution imagery and invaluable scientific data of Pluto's surface for the first time in human history. Members of the National Space Society, a non-profit devoted to accelerate humankind's pursuits beyond Earth, have honored the historic New Horizons mission by commissioning Stockholm-based digital artist Erik Wernquist to create this video.
