Find the speed of the New Horizons space probe.
1) Search online for the distance from the Earth to Pluto inmiles when Pluto is at its furthest point beyond the solarsystem.
2) The New Horizons space probe left Earth on Jan 19, 2006. Itreached Pluto on July 11, 2015. Calculate the number of years andmonths this took and convert this time in days. Multiply the numberof days by 24 hours/day.
3) Using the formula, speed = distance/time, calculate theapproximate speed of the New Horizons space probe. It will be inmiles per hour.
