2015 was a major year in the world of space exploration.
It was in this year, that the New Horizons spacecraft gave humans their very first clear look at Pluto. The pictures revealed a world completely unexpected, full of icy mountains and plains of frozen methane and nitrogen.
When it completed that mission, its overall mission was not yet over. It kept going, and on New Year’s day 2019, it flew by another interstellar body called Ultima Thule. The rocky body gave researchers brand new insight into how the galaxy’s planets were formed, and was also the most distant research mission ever undertaken — 4 billion miles away — by NASA.
Now next month, that story will be available for home viewers when PBS Distribution releases NOVA: Pluto and Beyond. The DVD is scheduled for release on March 26 and will retail for MSRP of $24.99. It can be pre-ordered now at a reduced price of $19.99 via PBS’ online store.
