"We know very little. I honestly think you could write all the facts down on a single sheet of paper," said planetary scientist Alan Stern of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colo.
Stern and his colleagues hope to end the ignorance with the New Horizons mission. The $650 million NASA probe, scheduled for launch next January, will conduct the first up-close investigation of Pluto and its icy, outer-solar system neighbors.
It will take about nine years for the probe to reach Pluto, which should shed some light on the planet (or mini-planet as some would prefer you call it).
"No spacecraft has ever been there in 40 years of planetary exploration," he said. "We've never been out into this third zone of the solar system, and we expect to be surprised."
The New Horizons spacecraft is under construction at Johns Hopkins University's Applied Physics Laboratory in Maryland. Launch will be aboard an Atlas V rocket built by Lockheed Martin Space Systems.
Well, if I am still here blogging I will post about it. Selah!
