Welcome to Pluto

Canyons on Pluto.... NASA's New Horizon mission just passed closest to the exciting dwarf planet Pluto. It goes on to see more of these old objects in our Solar System. It might glimpse in their thin atmospheres the original material our Solar System is made out of.

The veil is lifting that shrouded the mysteries of Pluto and its moons and soon even more of these new fascinating dwarf planets...

The NASA mission DAWN Mission will go on to Ceres, the dwarf planet in the Asteroid belt - much closer to us.
