New Horizons Live

Tomorrow morning at 7:49 am EDT, New Horizons will make her historic closest approach to Pluto. Linked below is a live feed from NASA. “Live” being relative in terms of imagery – with a delay of four and a half hours, it will be several days before Pluto is revealed up close and personal.

NASA has scheduled a news conference for 3 pm eastern to reveal New Horizon’s first photographs. Up until now, New Horizons images of Pluto came from LORRI (Long Range Reconnaissance Imager). Once New Horizons settles into close orbit, Ralph and Alice get to work. Named after Ralph and Alice Kramden on The Honeymooners, Alice sees the ultraviolet spectrum, Ralph in full colour.

It feels like the age of exploration and discovery of space has come upon us and we have barely begun to see the new science that will follow.right now Horizon feels like Christmas and I can barely wait what gift it will unwrap tomorrow morning.
