Video: How Pluto Might Look

The National Space Society shot a video featuring NASA's New Horizons mission’s approach to the Pluto system

The National Space Society released a video to salute the arrival of NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft at Pluto. On July 14th, NASA’s New Horizons mission to Pluto and the Kuiper Belt, launched in 2006, will make its closest approach to the Pluto system in the altitude of 12,500 km from the Pluto’s surface.

The film was directed by Erik Wernquist, creator of the short film Wanderers depicting exploration of the solar system.

In April this year, New Horizons sent the first color image of Pluto and its satellite Charon.
