The full download from New Horizons is still trickling in and should be done by the end of the year. Expect a flood of new high res images over the next few months as the incoming data gets processed and released to the public.

The next target has been selected and the Extended Mission looks like a go. So we will get to see another Kuiper Belt object in a few years!


There's so much stuff about Pluto just to the left of the article... Why aren't we hearing more about it? It sounds like something extremely peculiar which would be of interest to many people.
