When it comes to landmark achievements in space exploration, today, July 14, is one for the history books — the day humanity reached Pluto for the first time.

If everything goes according to plan, a NASA spacecraft, called New Horizons, will fly by Pluto at 9:49pm (AEST). New Horizons is the first spacecraft in history to ever visit Pluto, and it’s been a long time coming after 9 years in space.

NASA will stream live countdown coverage of the event starting at 9:30pm (AEST), followed by a briefing on the mission from 10:00pm (AEST) to 11:00pm (AEST).




Well done NASA, The images are amazing.
