Nasa’s JPL launches an app to watch a live computer simulation of New Horizons

NASA-JPL1
Washington, July 13: Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Lab has released an app for Mac and PC called ‘Eyes on the Solar System’ which allows the users to watch a live computer simulation of New Horizons’ approach.

NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft was launched in 2006 with the aim to perform the closest flyby of Pluto ever performed.

According to thenextweb.com, the users can watch what New Horizons spacecraft sees, how it maneuvers and what it is currently scanning.

It is only a simulation since it is not possible to livestream from a spacecraft that far away. (ANI)
