New Horizons Principal Investigator, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory

It's our first conversation with Alan Stern since the launch of New Horizons toward Jupiter, the Pluto system, and the faraway Kuiper belt. He gives us an update on the spacecraft, and describes the many projects that will keep him busy in the years before it reaches the ninth planet. Emily Lakdawalla explains why we don't call it the 'Voyager Anomaly,' and Bruce Betts with What's Up and a new trivia contest!
