1,000 Days Closer To Pluto

NASA New Horizons: The PI's Perspective 1,000 Days on the Road to Pluto

"It's hard to believe, but Oct. 15 will be the 1,000th day of flight for New Horizons. And in that time we've traveled so far that only four other spacecraft - Pioneers 10 and 11 and Voyagers 1 and 2 - have ventured farther. Can you believe it's been this long? Sometimes it seems so, but other times, it seems like we just blasted off from Florida on that cool afternoon of Jan. 19, 2006."

According to the NewHorizons2015 Twitter: "At 1400 Eastern tomorrow we begin our 1000th day of flight. Onward, onward now, ever toward the frontier!"
