On July 14th 2015, the spacecraft will fly by this farthest planet, and take images and scientific measurements along the way. The spacecraft of New Horizons had actually been sent forth nine years ago.

A notable detail is that the first few pictures taken show a heart on the planet of Pluto. Take a closer look through this image:
