After Pluto

Explanation: Where will New Horizons go after Pluto? This is an artist's impression of a Kuiper Belt object (KBO), located on the outer rim of our solar system at a staggering distance of 4 billion miles from the Sun. A HST survey uncovered three KBOs that are potentially reachable by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft after it passes by Pluto in mid-2015.
