New Horizons Mission Support
Community-wide effort to provide solar wind modeling support for the New Horizons Flyby:
"New Horizons Flyby Modeling Challenge"

This site presents initial results from computer simulations of the near Pluto Solar wind environment for the time period of the New Horizons Spacecraft flyby. Results are presented from models that range from a simpler 1D gasdynamic approximation, a 2D magnetohydrodynamic(MHD) simulation that includes passage of nearly 120 interplanetary coronal mass ejections, and 3D multi-fluid and 3D multiscale Fluid-Kinetic MHD models. Click on the caption in the slider for detailed results from and information about each model.




Project facilitator: Peter MacNeice. Please contact Peter MacNeice or Leila Mays if you would like to join the challenge.
