"Put this on. ". I slip the device onto my head and suddenly I'm in a perfectly white room, its unmarred floor marked off into perfect squares by barely visible lines. The lines mark off squares in every direction, disappearing into the distance. I notice small gray plus signs floating in the air around me. They seem to mark the corners of invisible squares. Someone slips headphones over my ears and then a pair of plastic controllers, each shaped like an elongated ice cream cone, floats into view. It looks like I can walk forever, but I know in two, three, four steps I'll walk mask-covered face-first into a wall. Suddenly, blue lines illuminate a barrier in front of me. I reach out slowly and touch the real wall of the real hotel room I'm really standing in. I know it's there, I can feel it. I just can't see it. I'm told to trust the blue lines, called the... They will make sure I don't break a nose or fatten a lip by walking into something solid while I play in something entirely virtual. I find — as I explore the depths of an ocean, fail miserably at impressing a genocidal artificial intelligence, cook and paint pictures in the air — that I have about 15 feet in every direction to walk before I collide with reality. Fifteen feet by 15 feet in which I can be.

But it is nothing compared with what you will see in a week, when NASA's New Horizons spacecraft buzzes just 7,800 miles above Pluto's surface. This visit will bring the dwarf planet into focus for the first time, illuminating mysterious dark regions on its surface and possibly erupting ice volcanoes. The fly-by, at 7:50 a. m. Eastern time on July 14, comes 14 years after the initial proposal and nine and a half years after New Horizons left Earth. The spacecraft will fly through the Pluto system at about 10 miles per second or around 31,000 miles per hour. You can read more about why this mission is so exceptional in this week's Science Times cover story and hear from those who made it happen in this New York Times documentary.
