MOST BUZZING SEARCHES RELATED TO NEW HORIZON MISSION TO NASA
What is the pipeline of this mission? How new horizon mission started? Why Pluto? Why Pluto is not a planet?
All the above questions were most searchable questions to Google. Being an aeronautical engineer, I want to share the answers of these questions. Beginning with questions
1. How new horizon mission started?
According to the NASA web portal, New horizon pioneering mission to Pluto was started on 19th January 2006 from Cape Canaveral. New horizon launched with record escape velocity of 16.26 kilometers per second. After 3450 (according to the NASA official mission website) days of launching new horizon began giving symptoms of successful space mission to Pluto.
2. What is the pipeline of this mission?
Nasa Space Agency aimed to study the dwarf planet’s atmosphere,moons and Kuiper belt.New horizon is a specially designed lightweight spacecraft for pioneering mission.
3. Why Pluto?
According to the NASA web portal, Pluto considered for studying the Pluto atmosphere, moons and Kuiper belt. New definition of planets announced by the international astronomical union in 2005 neglected Pluto as a planet. This announcement was made after the discovery of Eris in Kuiper belt. Some scientist supported Pluto as a planet. This confusion born the pioneering mission of NASA new horizon mission.
4. Why Pluto is not a planet?
According to the new terminology of the planet by the international astronomical union in 2005 after discovery of Eris in Kuiper belt states that Pluto is not a planet due to its size. Dwarf size Pluto in the category of dwarf planet and specifically known as Plutoid.
