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

    58:34

    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.

  • New Horizons Found Something Strange on Pluto

    7:51

    New Horizons found lots of interesting things about the previously unexplored Pluto. The former planet is home to ice-mountains floating in nitrogen, methane-ice towers as big as sky scrapers and maybe even a subsurface ocean!

    It's moon, Charon, was also explored by New Horizons and has some strange features. Nix, Hydra, Kerberos and Stix were chartered by the probe.

    After studying the Pluto system, New Horizons blasted off into the Kupier belt, to study Ultima Thule. New Horizons is still going, nearing the edge of the solar system.

    In this stunning animation, watch NASA's Cassini spacecraft begin the last chapter of its 20-year mission to Saturn. Diving deeper into Saturn's rings than ever before, scientists hope that the data from Cassini's final orbits will help to improve our understanding of the giant ringed planet. The probe's last act will be to plunge itself into the planet's atmosphere, where it will burn up and become part of the planet itself.

  • New Horizons Will Shed More Light on Pluto Than Ever Before

    2:41

    The New Horizons mission will help us understand worlds at the edge of our solar system by making the first reconnaissance of the dwarf planet Pluto and by venturing deeper into the distant, mysterious Kuiper Belt – a relic of solar system formation.

    Following a January 2006 launch, New Horizons is currently about 2.95 billion miles from home; the spacecraft is healthy and all systems are operating normally.

    APL designed, built, and operates the New Horizons spacecraft, and manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate. SwRI leads the science team, payload operations and encounter science planning. New Horizons is part of the New Frontiers Program managed by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

  • New Horizons - Summiting the Solar System: Part 2

    1:10:51

    On January 1, 2019, Ultima Thule, and object in the Kuiper Belt four billion miles from Earth, will be the most ancient and most distant world ever explored close up. Ultima is expected to offer discoveries about the origin and evolution of our solar system.

    Summiting goes behind the scenes of the most ambitious occultation campaigns ever mounted, as scientists deployed telescopes to Senegal and Colombia in 2018, and Argentina, South Africa and New Zealand in 2017, to glimpse Ultima as it passed in front of a star, and gathered data on the object's size and orbit that has been essential to planning the flyby. Mission scientists recall the astonishing scientific success of flying through the Pluto system in 2015, and use comparative planetology to show how Earth and Pluto are both amazingly different and—with glaciers, tall mountains, volcanoes and blue skies—awesomely similar. Appealing to space junkies and adrenaline junkies alike, Summiting brings viewers along for the ride of a lifetime as New Horizons pushes past Pluto and braves an even more hazardous unknown.

  • The Oort Cloud: Crash Course Astronomy #22

    11:41

    Now that we’re done with the planets, asteroid belt, and comets, we’re heading to the outskirts of the solar system. Out past Neptune are vast reservoirs of icy bodies that can become comets if they get poked into the inner solar system. The Kuiper Belt is a donut shape aligned with the plane of the solar system; the scattered disk is more eccentric and is the source of short period comets; and the Oort Cloud which surrounds the solar system out to great distances is the source of long-period comets. These bodies all probably formed closer into the Sun, and got flung out to the solar system’s suburbs by gravitational interactions with the outer planets.

    3:18

    Tiny, faraway Pluto was first spied in 1930. This icy world is one of thousands of rocky bodies that make up the Kuiper Belt, a ring that circles our solar system beyond Neptune. Until recently, the most powerful telescopes on Earth and in space could only capture blurry impressions of Pluto and its moons. But in 2015, New Horizons became the first spacecraft to visit the Pluto system, returning detailed images and data that will bring our distant neighbor’s surface, atmosphere, and internal composition into focus for the first time.

    Arrokoth: Solar System’s Time Capsule

    Subscribe for more videos:

    It’s always an astonishing feat when astronomers find new celestial bodies that tell different stories about the universe, but how often do they find ones that hold a lot of information about our star system that it effectively works as a time capsule? Today, we are going to explore farthest planetesimal that NASA’s New Horizons’ flyby ever captured: a floating snowman

    (roll intro)

    Admit it. I got you curious when I said NASA’s newest discovery is a flying snowman, right? Because that’s exactly how I felt when I read the headline in BBc back in 2019.

    But before we go on and explore the main topic, how about a bit of backgrounder first? Like all first meetings, it is best that first we get to a bit of history, before talking about the core stuff. It’s some kind of a setting of expectations about what we’re about to find out.

    Back in 2015, astronomers went completely crazy when NASA’s very own New Horizons spacecraft fruitfully accomplished flying by Pluto and providing mankind with its first ever, never before captured, raw, high-definition photograph of this dwarf planet. This endeavor was so huge of a success that it got astronomers all pumped up and thought, “Hey, maybe we can do more! How about we search for new candidates to explore? The spacecraft still has a lot of fuel, and we can only go further anyway.”

    And so the search began for the next object to photograph. Choosing the next candidate was not an easy task since, when the scientists pointed their telescopes to where New Horizons could possibly go, there were a lot of other stars and other objects that were really bright and acted as some kind of “noise” to the celestial map. However, the selection was still successful, despite the challenges.

    Time went on and an object was chosen. Catalogued as 2014 MU69, discovered back in 2014, this object found floating about in the Kuiper belt, 43 AU from the Sun..

    So, New Horizons plot its course and took on the task of flying by this new target!

    This expedition cost a lot of effort that the spacecraft actually had to do change its course four times just so they could fly by the object of interest. That’s a lot of fuel being burned for the sake of knowledge!

    Fast forward to the first day of 2019, lo and behold, New Horizons received transmission containing blocks of information about the photograph it took, and as it was revealed, the scientists were appalled by what they saw: “Is that Olaf floating in space?”

    To be honest, I don’t know if that last bit is true, but that is definitely what anybody’s first impression is going to be when they see this object: it looks like a giant, sideways snowman!

    What’s more amazing is that this is no simple snowman, apparently, upon studying this object further, scientists thought that this object could be Solar System’s very own time capsule.

    By definition, a time capsule is a storage unit. You place something inside it, either a memory, a photograph, and information, or a message to your future self or to whomever might pick this up someday.

    Our interesting snowman serves this function to our very own Solar System, and the astronomers are ecstatic to have found it!

    Arrokoth: Solar System’s Time Capsule

    The object earlier categorized as MU69 was later named Ultima Thule, taken from a story in Greek mythology describing a place that is somewhat the “Northernmost Place”, or essentially the farthest anyone can go to. However, there was a lot of criticism with the naming since Ultima Thule was also used previously in propaganda and fanaticism. So, to avoid further conflict, Mr. Snowman was renamed to Arrokoth: a word from Powhatan/Algonquian which translates to “sky” in English.

    Upon further investigation, it seems that Arrokoth may hold a lot of secrets about the formation of other objects and planetesimals in the Solar System. This is why scientists consider this to be Solar System’s very own time capsule. A peek into the properties of this celestial thing is a window to the early days of our star system, and provides a different perspective to insights we never had before.

    Arrokoth, is a trans-Neptunian object. It is a contact binary, meaning this object used to be two individual ones that went so close to each other that eventually they got stuck.

    It has two lobes nicknamed Ultima and Thule. The larger one, Ultima, is about 21.6 kilometers across its longest axis, while the smaller one, Thule, measures 15.4 kilometers end to end on its longest axis. The Ultima appears to be flatter than Thule.

    How Do New Horizons Costs Compare To Other Space Missions?

    Today, the New Horizons probe made its historic close approach to Pluto, and NASA is eagerly awaiting those images from the probe, which should arrive later tonight. Now the probe will continue its mission on into the Kuiper Belt - a large region of rocky bodies, including three dwarf planets, that's similar to the asteroid belt but much, much bigger.

    New Horizons: The First Mission to the Pluto System and the Kuiper Belt

    The New Horizons mission is helping us understand worlds at the edge of our solar system by making the first reconnaissance of the dwarf planet Pluto and by venturing deeper into the distant, mysterious Kuiper Belt - a relic of solar system formation.

    Finally! New Horizons has a Second Target

    What a huge relief: there is finally a place for New Horizons to visit beyond Pluto. A team of researchers led by John Spencer has discovered three possible targets, all in the Cold Classical part of the Kuiper belt.

  • Pluto Could Be Made A Planet Again, Along With 102 Other Celestial Bodies

    Behind the Push to Get Pluto Its Planetary Groove Back

    Pluto's loss of planetary status in 2006 remains controversial. Now a new definition is being proposed that would restore Pluto while increasing the number of planets in our solar system to over 110.

    NASA Scientists Have Proposed a New Definition of Planets, and Pluto Could Soon Be Back

    The key change the team is hoping to get approved is that cosmic bodies in our Solar System no longer need to be orbiting the Sun to be considered planets - they say we should be looking at their intrinsic physical properties, not their interactions with stars.

    Should Pluto Be a Planet After All? Experts Weigh In

    Pluto was demoted to a newly created category, dwarf planet, in 2006, partly because of the discovery a year earlier of Eris, another icy body from Pluto's neighborhood. Eris was thought to be bigger than Pluto until Nov. 6, when astronomers got a chance to recalculate Eris' size.

  • Beyond Pluto: The Hunt for a Massive

    54:24

    Over the past few years, Dr. Sheppard and his team have been performing the largest and deepest survey ever attempted of our Solar System’s fringes. In December 2018, he announced the most-distant object ever observed in our Solar System. His team’s work has shown that the farthest-out-there objects—beyond the Kuiper Belt and the influence of the known major planets—are strangely grouped together in space. This suggests the existence of a yet-unobserved planet, sometimes called Planet X or Planet 9, more massive than the Earth, which is shaping the current orbits of these objects. Dr. Sheppard will discuss the most-recent discoveries at the edges of our Solar System.
