Today humanity is going to achieve a significant landmark in space exploration, Tuesday the 14th July 2015 will be remembered as the day we reached Pluto for the first time and so our tiny school time favorite planet “Pluto” is by our reach.
If everything goes according to plan, a NASA spacecraft, called New Horizons, will fly by Pluto at 12:49 p.m 14th July 2015 . BST, or 7:49 a.m. ET. New Horizons will be the first spacecraft to ever visit Pluto, and after a nine-year journey, it has been a long time coming. The probe was set to grab more pictures and other science data on the object, as it passed 12,500km from the surface
