NASA has big plans for the upcoming years. They are currently studying Pluto and Mars. New Horizons was launched in 2006 and has went around our solar system system studying all the planets. It has now reached Pluto. So, what will NASA do next with New Horizons, you might ask? Well, they plan to begin studying the Kuiper belt in 2017-2020. Another plan that they have is to launch a new drone, InSight, in March 2016 to explore Mars. Why are they doing this, you might ask? They are doing this to see what Mars is like and how to prevent human beings from getting harmed. One more question, why would they want to know this? One of NASA'S biggest plans is actually a trip to Mars! They plan to make their journey to the red planet sometime in the 2030's. I am very excited about all this and I hope you are too!
