New Horizons to Pluto

Not just the “First Mission to the Last Planet” (no space probes have ever explored Pluto), but also the first mission to check out the mysterious Kuiper Belt, a region of space in our solar system that may harbor as many as 100,000 planetoids, perhaps 1,000 of them being as large as Pluto. And you grew up hearing we only had nine planets? Hah! Plus, the Kuiper Belt is thought to be the origin of many comets — yet it was only discovered in the early 1990s — in your lifetime!
