Probe This

NASA is preparing to launch a probe to explore Pluto. Assuming it can liftoff by January 11, the New Horizons spacecraft will take 9 1/2 years to reach its destination. The mission is actually more of a flyby, as it will not have enough fuel to decelerate and go into orbit.

If the mission proves successful, NASA hopes to launch more probes to explore other minor Disney characters.
