Last night Amir Alexander posted a very thorough pre-launch news story on New Horizons, "New Horizons Set to Launch on 9 Year Voyage to Pluto and the Kuiper Belt." There are lots of details in there I haven't read anywhere else.
Also, yesterday, we announced our two Top Ten lists for why Pluto is -- or isn't a planet. The overwhelming favorite among the secret panel of judges for why it's not a planet is "It doesn't appear to be so inclined...," submitted by Lyford Rome, of Ventura, California.
