Pluto – 1 week to go…

Well, we’re almost there. This time next week New Horizons will be whooshing its way through the Pluto system, and we’ll be just hours away from seeing that mysterious world in unprecedented detail. This is real exploration, real adventure, and many people – including me – are so excited about it we can barely sleep. What will NH see? Craters? Mountains? An ice cap? We’ll know next week, probably sooner because it won’t be long now until much sharper images start coming back from the probe.

Until then…
