We did it, humans!

This was the photo released this morning, as the New Horizons craft began the flyby sequence of the planet Pluto and its five (or more?) lovely moons. Much rejoicing, after decades of work.

Here are Paul Schenk and Bill, watching live as the spacecraft trajectory intersects Pluto.

  1. Bill’s badge says “speaker”, I wish I could hear him speak about Pluto…that would be awesome.

  2. Of course, Pluto has a heart!! The perfect love letter to all of the incredible humans that made this possible.
