NASA Hubble Telescope Hunts for New Horizons' Targets for After its Pluto Mission

Science World Report

But what will happen to the equipment after that? Now, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope is conducting an intensive search to find a suitable outer solar system object for New Horizons to visit after its Pluto mission. More specifically, Hubble has set its sights on the Kuiper Belt when it comes to hunting for an object for study. In order to actually have New Horizons deviate from its course and study the Kuiper Belt, though, Hubble needs to find a minimum of two KBOs. That said, the scientists still need to establish whether or not these KBOs are suitable targets for New Horizons.
