Follow the Pluto Science Conference Online

July 22, 2013

Just two years before New Horizons’ historic flight through the Pluto system, scientists are gathering July 22-26 at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Md., to discuss the mission and its science plans – as well as make predictions about the science New Horizons will return from the planetary frontier.

New Horizons Deputy Project Scientist Kimberly Ennico is blogging from the conference; read her posts here.  Also follow the conversation on Twitter; look for the hashtag #Plutosci.

On Tuesday, July 23, New Horizons Principal Investigator Alan Stern will deliver a lecture about the mission, “New Horizons to Planet Pluto: Exploring the Frontier of Our Solar System.” The talk, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. (EDT) in APL’s Kossiakoff Center, is free and open to the public – and will be webcast live.
