It is hard to believe that 2015 is already here, we would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year and look forward to continuing to serve you with fantastic Space News throughout the year.
This year promises to be an exciting year as NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft races towards Pluto, Dawn moves closer to Ceres, Boeing and SpaceX are scheduled to meet more milestones on the Commercial Crew program, the International Space Station hosts it’s first year long mission, and lots more.
As well as reporting on US and ISS launches, we also plan to bring you some new content including looking Beyond ISS, a Trip to Mars, more Future Now articles and plenty more.
As you read this article the New Horizons spacecraft will be closing in on the Pluto system for a July flyby for our first close encounter with the planet and it’s moons, in addition the Dawn spacecraft which has been in space since 2007 and spent 14 months at Vesta is scheduled to arrive at Ceres in April. For this reason we would like to declare this as the year of the Dwarf Planets to support the teams who have worked on and continue to work on these amazing missions.
