Pluto may have been demoted to a dwarf planet, but it remains a fascinating part of our Solar System.  July 14th, NASA’s New Horizons space probe made its closest approach to Pluto and has provided us with new data about this dwarf planet. Join Jackie Faherty and Emily Rice as they take you through the probe’s historic journey and highlight the ground breaking science that has emerged along the way.
