Space missions take years to plan. But they also take years to execute, so special robots are used to study deep space instead of astronauts. Pluto is so far away, the New Horizons probe took 10 years to get there. The main content describes the amazing technology used to build the probe as well as what tools it uses to study Pluto and the Kuiper Belt. Informative sidebars introduce the scientist who discovered Pluto and other fascinating STEM information. Full-color photographs and diagrams show off the coolest parts of the robot and the photos and data itÂs collected.
