I don't know if you guys have seen the latest pics from Pluto but they were quite interesting.


The new nerdy thing I learned was that the orbit of pluto's moons is perpendicular to it's orbit around the sun.

See this interactive page from the NYT

I thought I should share.

"New Horizons" is plural, no apostrophe needed. :tongue:

I posted a couple pics in the sort of "space and rocketry" thread we have ongoing... Definitely among the biggest space accomplishments in the last decade or so.

Close up of the surface of Pluto...
