New Horizons Spacecraft (NASA)

  • April 19, 2019

Today we have to talk about new horizons. It is called interplanetary space probe. New Horizons was launched as a part of NASA's new frontiers program. So we get some information about New Horizons.

New Horizons was launched by John S. Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory and Research Institute, S.Alan Stern on January 19, 2006 with the primary mission to study Flyby. New Horizons make its closest approach on February 28, 2007, due to a distance of 2.3 meters, 2.3 million kilometers. The main goal of New Horizons is to understand the transformation of the Plutonium System, the Kuiper Belt and the initial solar system.

The scientific abilities of New Horizons were very capable, and they worked to return information about the Pluto planet's atmosphere, moons and magnetosphere. New horizons were back online for the encounter on July 6, 2014, due to which the spacecraft began their approach in Pluto on January 15, 2015.

New Horizons has received a lot of data from Pluto planets. New Horizons was largely based on the work of Pluto 350 from Sterns. New Horizons was selected for the official funding in November 2001 as part of the New Frontiers program. New Horizons has the highest peak in the list of the most preferred projects in the medium-sized category.

This spacecraft is known as the first mission in NASA's New Frontiers mission category. This mission is very big and expensive than a Discovery Mission. The cost of launching this mission is approximately $ 700 million in 2001 to 2006. This spacecraft was primarily planned as the journey of the sole inexperienced planet from the Solar System.

This spacecraft has collected the data of Pluto and its Moons meteors and surfaces. New Horizons collected 5000 times more data in Pluto, on Mariner Red Planet. The main goal of this mission was to research Pluto's surface, atmosphere, temperature, additional satellites etc.

The New Horizons body is made up of 0.76 m thick and has a triangle New Horizons is mainly composed of Aluminum. New Horizons have spin-stabilized and three-axis stabilized modes, which are completely controlled with Hydrazine monopropellant. With this spacecraft is communicated by the X band.

New Horizons have an Ultrastable Oscillator Subsystem that is used to study and test pioneer incompatibilities towards the end of the life of spacecraft. The first images of Pluto from New Horizons were obtained during the test of LORRI. This was released on November 28, 2006. New horizons were taken images of Pluto from approximately 4.2 billion kilometers. New Horizons used to use the LORRI to draw the first photographs of Jupiter from a distance of 291 million kilometers.

Most of the new horizons were spent in the hibernation mode across Pluto's journey. New horizons have been called the fastest spacecraft ever. Because it is found to leave the Earth at 16.26 kilometers per second. The surface of this spacecraft is cooled down to the CDC by an inactive radiator on the face of the ant solar. Due to which the difference in temperature is insulated, and separating from the remaining structures is necessary. New horizons have 208.3 mm retrofit-charity mirrors and the metering structure is made of silicon carbide.

New Horizons Plasma and High-Energy particles form one of the two instruments containing spectrometer suites (PAM), which is a toroid electrostatic analyzer of Pluto (SADP) around the Pluto (SADP) and maintaining a potential analyzer (RPA), while the other is PEPSSI.
