I have read that the New Horizons probe plans on visiting some other Kuiper-belt objects once it passes Pluto, but not sure which ones. This brings up a few questions:
- Are there any leading KBO candidates?
- Are they just looking for objects in its current trajectory, or does the probe have enough fuel to significantly alter its orbit on closest approach with Pluto?
- Will New Horizons follow a hyperbolic trajectory past Pluto?
- How close will it get to the surface?
