News - As Pluto disappears into New Horizons’ rear view mirror, the little space probe that could is veering towards its next target in the Kuiper belt. 2014 MU69 is small enough that it could nestle into the crook of Cape Cod, and currently is about as far from New Horizons as Saturn is from the Sun. Frederic Pelletier is the person in charge of getting New Horizons to MU69. An interplanetary navigator at KinetX Aerospace, he’s a master of orbital propagation: the discipline of guiding a hunk of metal through space from one rock to another. “It involves a lot of things, like Newtonian equations to understand the orbits of both MU69 and New Horizons, to determine their position at encounter time,” says Pelletier.
