Have you ever wondered, “What the heck is up with Pluto?” Well, you won’t have to wait much longer to find out.
The ever-mysterious outlier has puzzled mankind for 85 years, but thanks to a gruelling, almost decade-long NASA-led mission, we earthlings are about to get a historic never-before-seen glimpse of the dwarf planet as the New Horizons spacecraft does a
drive fly-by on Tuesday, July 14. Then, just hours after New Horizons’ historic encounter, Discovery will break down the entire journey in a one-hour special, Pluto: First Encounter (Wednesday, July 15 at 7 p.m. ET/ 4 p.m. PT on Discovery).
In the meantime, we’re keeping ourselves busy by guessing what they’ll find on the mysterious sometimes planet (with increasing levels of ridiculousness). And as it turns out, it’s a pretty entertaining pastime. Now, it’s your turn: It’s time to play the hardest game of “Would you rather…” yet, the Pluto edition.
