Simulated New Horizons spacecraft views down spacecraft axes Six views of the New Horizons spacecraft, looking down each of the spacecraft axes. The spacecraft coordinate system is such that +X is out along the RTG, +Y is up through the antenna, and +Z is out in the direction of Alice and Ralph. Visit this page for individual images devoted to each axial view. The same model was used to produce this animated turntable view of New Horizons.
