NASA anticipates greater discoveries

Makes Statement

Speaking before the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, Stern says scientific information gleaned from the New Horizons mission to Pluto is “revolutionizing” what they know about the icy dwarf planet, predicting that even greater discoveries lay ahead.

With only 5% of data on the ground, we all feel we need to fasten our seat belts for the next 95%.

It will take 16 months for all the collected data from New Horizons to be transmitted to Earth. Scientists say the mission demonstrates this need for further planetary exploration.

Now is the time to accelerate, not curtail, the pace and scope of our nation’s solar system exploration program.
