Since New Mexico astronomer Clyde Tombaugh discovered Pluto in 1930, relatively few details have been discovered about the dwarf planet because it?s the only major object in the solar system that has not been visited by a robotic explorer. That?s about to change as the New Horizon spacecraft soars through the outer solar system this year.
New Mexico scientists highlight their science and how it has evolved over the past century.
Enjoy some of the greatest music of all time complete with lasers and more special effects!
