Title: The Pluto System as Explored by New Horizons

Abstract:
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.
