NASA has released a new video reminding us that its New Horizons spacecraft has only one year left until it reaches Pluto, planet or dwarf planet or whatever you want to call it.

New Horizons launched from Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on January 19, 2006. Its voyage will last 9½ years and is scheduled to fly by Pluto on July 14, 2015.

NASA is already considering a new mission for New Horizons once it leaves Pluto.
