MU69 Infographic 4: A Multi-Faceted Exploration of the Kuiper Belt


Explanation: This is one of four infographics that we produced to show some component of the New Horizons extended mission in the Kuiper Belt. This infographic talks about the main three components of the extended mission: Studying the environment of space out so far from the sun, the close flyby of MU69, and distant – but still better than from Earth – flybys of other Kuiper Belt Objects.
