This is the full extended version of the film I had the honor of making for the National Space Society to promote NASAs New Horizons spacecraft and its historic reconnaissance mission to Pluto and its system of moons on July 14 2015 – the very first exploration of this system in human history.
I got to work closely with the missions principal investigator Alan Stern and I am grateful for his and the rest of his team’s confidence in me to make this film.
