Pluto or bust!

Pluto or bust!  At right is the latest photo from the New Horizons robotic space probe.  It's by far the best image of Pluto ever obtained.  Via APOD, of course.  More details here and here.

Next Tuesday (7/14) is the big day – the day that New Horizons passes close by (less than 8,000 miles) Pluto.  Go, go, go!
