Who knows? So far, it's doing fine. In space (like in life) something bad can happen at any time. Or not. There's a dedicated thread to New Horizon (sic) in Missions and Launches.

And BTW, New Horizons has passed the halfway point in time on it's trip to Pluto:

"On Sunday, Oct. 17, at 3:24 Universal Time, we passed the halfway mark in the number of days from launch to Pluto encounter – the last of our halfway milestones en route to Pluto! From here, we have fewer days in front of us than behind us"
