This is BEYOND cool. A week from today we'll get our first look at Pluto. It's been a nine year journey. I love the New York TImes Op-docs and Fast and Light to Pluto is an amazing story.
"It's important to have an opportunity like the Pluto fly-by to remind ourselves that we are actually quite capable of doing extraordinary and beautiful things." - Carolyn Porco, Cassini Mission Imaging Team Leader
