NASA said Monday it expects the New Horizons spacecraft to be back in service Tuesday after a computer glitch on the weekend threatened its upcoming historic flyby of Pluto.The mission will provide the first up-close observations of Pluto when it passes within 7,800 miles (12,550 km) of the icy planet at around 7:50 a.m. ET (1350 GMT) on July 14 .Scientists believe Pluto and the thousands of other recently discovered Kuiper Belt objects are frozen mini-planets and building blocks from the solar system's formation 4.6 billion years ago.
