Halfway There! New Horizons Reaches Midpoint of Journey to Distant Asteroid NASA’s New Horizons probe has reached the halfway point on its journey from Pluto to the Kuiper Belt Object (KBO) 2014 MU69. Since New Horizons made its closest approach to Pluto in July 2015, it has traveled 486.19 million miles – half the distance to 2014 MU69 – as of 8:00 p.m. EST on April 2.
