What 10 Years of Space Travel Looks Like


10 years ago when I started this blog I did a post about the New Horizons interplanetary space probe launched in 2006. When I did this post in 2007 the spacecraft had just passed the planet Jupiter. Now 10 years later it is well passed Pluto on on the way to the Kuiper belt. I always like this probe because it goes so fast , it's like a hotrod in space. Anyway this is what 10 years of space travel looks like.  We love NASA !! More great info in this link.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Horizons
