The New Horizons spacecraft flew past Pluto on July 14 this year, revolutionizing our understanding of this remarkable distant dwarf planet and its moons. The flyby was the culmination of over two decades of effort, including a journey from Earth that lasted more than nine years.
Pluto has emerged as a world of spectacular variety. It has some of the brightest and darkest surfaces in the solar system, including exotic ices such as frozen nitrogen and carbon monoxide; landscapes that are ancient and landscapes that are still being renewed; and a flowing icecap that sits, bizarrely, astride its equator.
If an extended mission is approved by NASA, the spacecraft plans to visit a Kuiper Belt world in 2018 or 2019, carrying the tradition of human exploration even further into the unknown.

On display are first editions of Galileo Galili’s “Dialogo” (1632), Thomas Hobbes’ “Leviathan” (1651), Jonathan Swift’s “Gulliver’s Travels” (1726), Mark Twain’s “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” (1884), J.D.
