Hi all

The images are getting clearer as New Horizons gets closer.

Speaking personally I'm getting excited about this mission, it takes me back to the Voyager mission as it approached Uranus and Neptune, showing us images of worlds that were never seen before.

The next couple of weeks are going to be really interesting.

I can't see any person, though.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.

I hear that a lot of the planetary scientists heavily involved in this mission have been persistently calling Pluto a planet over the many years since the New Horizon spacecraft was launched.

Some things make me giggle.

I guess they launched the probe to a planet, only to have it arrive at a dwarf planet, as the planet got bigger in New Horizon's sight, it got smaller on Earth. :lol:
