New Horizons: Bridge to the Beginning

Launched on Jan. 19, 2006, NASA’s New Horizons mission to Pluto and the Kuiper Belt will help us understand worlds at the edge of our solar system by making the first reconnaissance of Pluto and Charon - a "double planet" and the last planet in our solar system to be visited by spacecraft.

Bridge to the Beginning follows the New Horizons spacecraft as it recently flew by Jupiter on its way to Pluto and the Kuiper Belt. Learn about these planets and how spacecraft view the Universe across the entire electromagnetic spectrum. The program has a running time of 29 minutes. It is suitable for grades 3 and up.
