New Horizons Mission Invites Community to Its 55th Science Team Meeting

24-25 January 2024

NASA’s New Horizons mission held its 55th Science Team Meeting on Jan. 24-25, 2024, and continued its tradition of welcoming open participation from the science community.

This hybrid meeting was hosted by Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, 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.

The New Horizons Science Team Meeting was held at Johns Hopkins APL.
