In 2015, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft captured incredibly detailed images of Pluto, revealing a world alive with geological activity, but it didn’t stop there. New Horizons traveled another billion miles to the Kuiper Belt object Ultima Thule. Explore the new data from this farthest spacecraft flyby in history with the Museum’s Director of Astrovisualization Carter Emmart, and New Horizon scientists David Grinspoon and Henry Throop

Carter Emmart, the Museum's director of astrovisualization, has been involved in all five of the Museum’s Space Shows, all of which are now playing in planetariums all over the world. Emmart was one of the original Museum team members on the NASA-funded Digital Galaxy Project that helped redefine how a planetarium theater can present science to the public through immersive data visualization.
