Title: The Pluto System as Explored by New Horizons

New Horizons is NASA’s mission to explore the Pluto system and the Kuiper Belt. It made the first exploration of the Pluto system in 2015, culminating with a highly successful flyby inside the orbits of all five of Pluto’s moons on July 14th. It is now on a 5 year extended mission to explore the Kuiper Belt. I will describe the history of the mission, the encounter with planet Pluto, and the major scientific discoveries made to date, and the mission’s future plans.
