Now me personally. I am pumped for it to reach Pluto and the kepler belt. The first real study of the two areas. Anyone else pumped?

Just a suggestion, in the future post a summary or a link in case people aren't familiar with the topic.


And yes, I am pumped.


"In 2006, NASA dispatched an ambassador to the planetary frontier. The New Horizons spacecraft is now halfway between Earth and Pluto, on approach for a dramatic flight past the icy planet and its moons in July 2015.

After 10 years and more than 3 billion miles, on a historic voyage that has already taken it over the storms and around the moons of Jupiter, New Horizons will shed light on new kinds of worlds we've only just discovered on the outskirts of the solar system.

Pluto gets closer by the day, and New Horizons continues into rare territory, as just the fifth probe to traverse interplanetary space so far from the Sun. And the first to travel so far, to reach a new planet for exploration."

also me!


the only thing that I find a bit down is it is a TIE (triple ion engine) ship, not a proper probe, nor called Vger or Nomad.


well it can`t be perfect, I think we will learn a lot from this TIE
