We are only days away from NASA's New Horizon robot flying by Pluto. It is an impressive story. That fast moving little spaceship gave us all a little extra excitement on July 4th when that spacecraft declared temporary independence from operations. Turns out multitasking isn't all that great for spacecraft either. But, she's back on track and ready for a historic close encounter. If you weren't around for the Voyager flybys, this is something for the history books. Enjoy!

Good luck to all the men and women who are making this historic event happen.
