Twenty-six years passed since the day when Dr. Alan Stern first proposed NASA to fly to Pluto to the moment the New Horizons mission reached its goal in 2015. In his fascinating and at times very hilarious presentation, Dr. Stern talks about a long and difficult journey from his initial idea to its realization. It can be compared to an equally long and breathtaking journey through the entire solar system. This is a grand tale of personal perseverance of Dr. Stern and his team. His story is as powerful and inspirational now as this crazy idea of his must have sounded a quarter of a century ago.
