At least 1 Kuiper Belt target available to New Horizons

Little did I know that “Let them eat static” was a harbinger of my posting activity. Sorry about the lack of activity the past couple of days. I was a bit under the weather, and had a big project dumped in my lap at work that needed my undivided attention until I had it done yesterday afternoon. Then I went home and slept.

The good news is that there should be plenty to post today! And the first bit of news worth posting upon is…

Ah! One of my favorite topics: Hubble discovers 3 potential Kuiper Belt objects for New Horizons.

One is already considered “definitely reachable”, though the other two will have to be tracked a while to determine if they’ll be reachable as well.

Excellent news for New Horizons!
