Pluto

Not as boring as you might think.

The New Horizons probe passed by Pluto at about 14 km/s (~8.7 m/s) at a distance of 12,500 km (about 7,800 miles, which is 1/3 the distance between the Earth and the Moon). NASA’s next round of data collection will occur sometime after midnight tonight, which will include the highest resolution photos of the planet to date. This is an exciting time for astronomy. My undergraduate degree is in Physics, and I can’t help but feel a bit left behind, but I’m happy for all the advances humanity is making, as well as the knowledge we’re gathering about the universe.
