The New Horizons Extended Kuiper Belt mission is up:

New Horizons Kuiper Belt Extended Mission


Interestingly enough, in Orbiter 2014 OS393 seems easy to get to, and 2014 PN70 (the actual back-up target) is impossible.

Hey guys, I've downloaded this addon only to have Styx and Kerberos in Orbiter. I was searching for them in orbit hangar but there wasn't any addon but this so I downloaded it. But when I was watching the plutonian sistem with Orbit MFD, I found that the orbital elements for Pluto's moons are wrong. Do you know how to change it?

Hi,
to change the orbital elements for a planet or moon, look in your Orbiter/Config/ folder and find the relevant .cfg file, e.g. styx.cfg.
Open the file with any text editor, such as Notepad, and change the orbital elements as required.

IIRC, there was an issue because the smaller moons orbit Pluto in Orbiter, not the combined Pluto/Charon System.

NASA has selected the potential next destination for the New Horizons mission to visit after its historic July 14 flyby of the Pluto system. The destination is a small Kuiper Belt object (KBO) known as 2014 MU69 that orbits nearly a billion miles beyond Pluto.

I've been waiting for that news.

But, no surprise.
