The Pluto team, by Kyle Cassidy

Last Saturday, I had a little brainwave about producing a portrait shoot of the New Horizons team (the media had all decamped and suddenly things were quiet and nerdy again) and I called Kyle Cassidy, and Kyle called Slate. He hopped a train down to DC and we set up a nerdshoot. We managed to get 42 sciencey people connected with the New Horizons Pluto mission photographed and quoted, and Slate published a nice essay with 16 of them featured. You can see it here, or click the image below.

Kyle wrote it up on his blog here, and there is a full gallery of all 42 people we managed to catch for portraits here, if you’d like to see them all. It was fun to arrange- and our timing was accidentally perfect, because Brian May was still around and Kyle was able to take a stereo image of him, which you can see at the bottom of the page.

And here is Brian May’s published version of Kyle’s stereo shot of him. Most excellent!


View it with his Owl steroscopic viewer, which he is showing off in the photo.
