A stunning teaser for NASA’s New Horizons mission to Pluto will leave you brimming with anticipation.

A new video has been released to promote NASA’s New Horizons mission, which will make history as the first spacecraft to visit and capture close-up images of Pluto when it arrives at the dwarf planet on July 14.

The video was commissioned by the National Space Society in honor of the highly anticipated arrival of NASA’s New Horizons probe at Pluto this summer. Erik Wernquist, creator of the Wanderers short film, produced and directed this video. The short film is dedicated to all those who worked on the early planetary reconnaissance missions.

The short video takes you on a tour of the solar system, flying by all the planets we’ve already visited leading up to the one world no spacecraft has yet explored. The short film offers a breathtaking view of what Pluto might look like when New Horizons arrives.
