New unusual rocks were discovered in the Kuiper Belt which orbits is similar with that of Neptune.
NASA revealed last Friday, that the agency will sail at full speed in terms of space exploration while waiting for the Jupiter's up close encounter courtesy of Juno on Aug.27.
NASA released a simulation video that shows the point-of-view of a spacecraft landing on Pluto. The video was created using 100 images captured by the New Horizons spacecraft taken within a span of six weeks during the spacecraft's approach to the dwarf planet during its flyby in 2015.
A new dwarf planet has been discovered out in the far reaches of the solar system, past Neptune and Pluto. The discovery has been designated "2015 RR245" by the International Astronomical Union.
The New Horizons spacecraft will perform a flyby on an another object within the Kuiper belt that orbits the sun one billion tmiles farther than Pluto.
The Kuiper Belt is located on the edge of the Solar System populated by four dwarf planets. One of which called Makemake was discovered orbited by an alien dark moon who had long been undetected.
After its Pluto flyby on July 14, 2015, NASA's New Horizons space probe is not stopping its interstellar discovery. Recently, the spacecraft has made a stunning discovery -- a mysterious space rock beyond Pluto.
It could be an optimistic image, or it could just be how light scatters. But it's still amazing to know that Pluto has a blue atmospheric haze and that it has areas of water ice, as New Horizons images recently revealed.
