I mentioned on a few occasions that I have been very excited with the New Horizons mission since it was launched back in 2006. And now it is almost there! With the new and sharper images coming every day it is like watching SF movie that turns out to be documentary. Wink

Yeah, I have been following this probe also. The last of the original set of planets will soon reveal many of its secrets.

And now we've got Eris, Sedna, Makemake, etc., to add to the list of places to explore.

“The next time we see this part of Pluto at closest approach, a portion of this region will be imaged at about 500 times better resolution than we see today. It will be incredible,”


waiting, about to reach closest approach.

I wonder where the probe will go after the flyby?
Kuiper Belt and then Oort Cloud?
