New Horizons on Track, All Clear, and Ready for Action

Explanation: In the New Horizons Mission Operations Center at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, Priya Dharmavaram (front) and Tim Miralles monitor telemetry from New Horizons following a course-correction maneuver on June 14 that refined the NASA spacecraft's path toward the Pluto system. New Horizons will make its closest approach to Pluto on July 14; the maneuver kept the spacecraft on track toward an "aim point" approximately 7,750 miles above Pluto's surface.
