    >Today, July 14, New Horizons stands precisely nine years from its
    >closest approach date with the ninth planet and her moons. Next week, on
    >July 19, the mission celebrates the six-month anniversary of its launch.
    >New Horizons has tested several of its science instruments, tracked an
    >asteroid, and is now closer to Jupiter than it is to the Sun.
