Countdown to New Horizons' historic Pluto fly-by
The spacecraft has travelled nearly five billion kilometres over nine and a half years to get there.
While New Horizons does not carry enough fuel to slow down, land or orbit around Pluto, the images that it will send have already captured people's imaginations.
The imaging data will not be available immediately, however, as it is transmitted at around 2 kilobits per second, taking 4.5 hours to reach Earth.

A one-hour live broadcast of the events on the NASA website will begin at 12.30pm UTC.
