Join the Ice Hunters!

In 2006, NASA dispatched an ambassador to the planetary frontier. The New Horizons spacecraft is now halfway between Earth and Pluto, on approach for a dramatic flight past the icy dwarf planet and its moons in July 2015. Following its close encounter with Pluto and its icy companion Charon, the New Horizons team hope to redirect the spacecraft toward another icy body in the Kuiper belt, the vast swarm of small worlds beyond Neptune that includes Pluto as one of its largest members. Perhaps you will help the team find that next Kuiper Belt Object (KBO) through this website! I've joined the team and I've found 173 objetcs in 513 images analyzed !
