Chasing New Horizons: Inside the Epic First Mission to Pluto, co-written by New Horizons principal investigator Alan Stern and David Grinspoon, a member of the New Horizons science team, will be published and available for purchase as of May 1, 2018. I am currently reading the book, which I will review for Spaceflight Insider, which I will then link to this blog.
The fascinating story of New Horizons is a tribute to the persistence and passion of the scientists who first came up with the idea of a mission to Pluto--all the way back in 1989!
