New Horizons is a success! Today's flyby is an amazing accomplishment. It's hard to believe that we finally know what Pluto looks like in great detail. As a kid, I loved looking at images of the solar system, but I was frustrated by the fact that our best images of Pluto were so blurry.
That's not a problem anymore!
Billions of miles traveled. 9 years have passed since New Horizons loaunched, and it took many years of planning to even get to that point. Congratulations to the people who made it possible!
