2015: The year of the Pluto encounter

A great article about the upcoming New Horizons wake up and operational checkout. 6 December is when New Horizons comes out of hibernation for good. It’ll then go through about six weeks of operational tests and then by the middle of January, will begin observing Pluto and its moons daily. By mid-April it will be close enough to have a higher resolution than Hubble has of the planet — things should get REALLY interesting then. I CANNOT WAIT!

Any yes, I’m running late this morning…but I’m on it now. Today’s been a crazy day so far even for a Monday.
