Some more New Horizons stuff for you to read as the clock ticks down...

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.

We know you love reading about space exploration, but did you know you can make it happen?

Take our Space Priorities survey and consider a gift to our Space Policy and Advocacy program to fuel more missions, more science, and more exploration.
