He may now be an Associate Administrator at NASA, but he's still Principal Investigator for humankind's first trip to Pluto. Alan Stern provides a triumphant report on the recent flyby of Jupiter completed by the New Horizons spacecraft. Emily Lakdawalla explains how interplanetary navigators plot the courses of New Horizons and its sistercraft, while Bruce Betts tells Mat Kaplan about the busy night sky and opens another space trivia contest on What's Up!


No trivia contest spoilers please!
