This is timed to occur at 11:50 GMT (12:50 BST).The probe will investigate not only Pluto but also its five moons: Charon, Styx, Nix, Kerberos and Hydra.To achieve that, it must perform a furious set of manoeuvres as it points every which way in the sky to get the images and other types of data it needs.”I can’t wait to get into the data and really start making sense of it. Right now, we’re just standing under the waterfall and enjoying it,” New Horizons’ principal investigator, Alan Stern, told BBC News.
