Summary In July 2015, the New Horizons spacecraft, one of the most advanced ever built, travelled past Pluto to take the very first detailed images of the dwarf planet. After nine years and three billion miles, humans will finally get a close look at this strange, icy world, but only if the craft can survive the final, treacherous leg of its journey, which could take it through a dangerous field of debris. This documentary captures the dramatic new discoveries, not just about Pluto, but about the vast realm of icy bodies lurking beyond Neptune, relics of the earliest days of the solar system's formation. Back on Earth, the planetary scientists who have spent decades working on this mission anxiously await a signal from their spacecraft, with cameras there to witness the moment.
