Big news as the New Horizons spacecraft finally gets to enjoy it's Pluto flyby on Tuesday night and we can all look forward to what will hopefully be some incredible photos. The boffins at HQ say it's in great shape, I mean hey, it's only travelled 5 billion Kilometers! It's not been such great times for Pluto who has been downgraded from planet to dwarf planet since the mission began back in 2006.
I actually illustrated the New Horizons spacecraft for my book Space Exploration. Good to know it made it to Pluto but this is not the end of it's journey as it heads out into distant parts of the solar system.
