New Horizons Mission Invites Community to Its 54th Science Team Meeting

October 26-27, 2023

NASA’s New Horizons mission held its 54th Science Team Meeting on Oct. 26-27, 2023, and continued its tradition of welcoming open participation from the science community.

This hybrid meeting was hosted by Boston University, and members of the science community were welcome to join in person or online.

Launched in 2006, New Horizons is the only spacecraft in the outer solar system and outer heliosphere. The mission continues to uncover the unexplored worlds of the distant Kuiper Belt, make unique measurements of the solar wind and other phenomena such as pick-up ions, interplanetary shocks and dust; and make remote observations for possible signatures of the hydrogen wall, interstellar clouds and an unexpected excess of cosmic background. The mission team’s careful management of New Horizons’ on-board power is enabling about 25 more years of spacecraft operations, not only through the outer regions of the Kuiper Belt, but also well into the heliosheath and possibly through the heliopause.

Meeting Location:

The New Horizons Science Team Meeting was held near Boston University at 43 Hawes St, Brookline, MA. Located in the Fenway Park area, this events center is a university-owned mansion built in 1902.
