New HorizonsPayload Characteristics


New HorizonsScience Traceability

New Horizons meets or exceeds all of the PKB mission Group 1 (AO-required) measurement objectives, plus all of the (AO-desired) Group 2, and 3 of the 4 Group 3 measurement objectives.


Science Objectives Are Accomplished with Great Functional Redundancy


Toward New Frontiers

New Horizons is Demonstrating That Exciting Low Cost Outer Planet Missions Are Indeed Feasible.
