MC2 Post 2024 A "To Boldly Go" reminder that NASA Is Still Pushing the Envelope







Just by luck, I caught this Google+ posting by NASA this morning:

TODAY: Join us at 1 p.m. EDT as we preview our New Horizons mission, which will help us understand worlds at the edge of our solar system by making the first flyby of dwarf planet Pluto July 14 and by venturing deeper into the distant, mysterious Kuiper Belt – a relic of solar system formation.

Well that 1 p.m. EDT translated to 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time.  I looked at the clock and saw it was 1 minute to 10:00.  I opened another tab in my browser to the NASA TV link shown above and for the next hour 1/2 

I was informed in really nice detail, about 

the Pluto Flyby next month.
 

Educational programming at its best.


After the program there was a link for a Desktop NASA app for Windows and Apple to follow along on this momentous journey to the farthest reaches of our Solar System.

 

Very Impressive.
