New Horizons: The 7 Best Planets in Sci-Fi


When the New Horizons probe passed Pluto on July 14, 2015, it made history as the first spacecraft to reach the last unexplored world in our solar system. But, as we all know, poor old Pluto was demoted from planet status back in 2006 when the definition of "planet" was reviewed. Yet that hasn't stopped us all from getting excited that we've finally visited the last of the classical nine planets of the solar system!

To celebrate we felt we needed a planetary booklist, of course! Click through for our pick of the 7 best planets in sci-fi! Missed one of your favorite SF planets? Let us know @Riffle.
