We just issued a press release announcing that the deadline has been extended to enter photos into the New Horizons Digital Time Capsule, in large part because we now have a great prize to offer. The New Horizons team has offered to allow a Grand Prize winner into the Applied Physics Lab during New Horizons encouter with Jupiter next February, and we're going to pay for your trip! So check out the contest, read the rules, then go out with your camera and take a picture. Write a good caption, explaining why you think the subject of the picture is going to change between now and 2015. Then enter your photo. Since people seem to be having a little trouble coming up with ideas more creative than taking photos of themselves and their kids, a few of us here at the Society brainstormed and tossed out a few sample photos and captions for you to consider (and improve upon). Actual entries will be judged upon the perceived likelihood that the subject of the photo will change over the next 9 years; the aesthetic quality of the photograph; and the uniqueness of the subject.
