...about the latest developments out of NASA (it's pretty hard to top the moon landing when I was eleven years old back in 1969), but I have to admit this week's New Horizons mission to Pluto fascinated me. I wish I could find the actual tweet that first caught my attention, but it went something like this:
Right now, a tiny robot sent nine and a half years ago by a curious species of apes is visiting a distant planet
three billion miles away.
That's pretty amazing when you think of it like that, isn't it?
