NASA Pluto Probe to Wake From Hibernation Next Month

NASA's New Horizons probe is about to wake up from a long slumber and get ready for its highly anticipated Pluto flyby next summer. New Horizons is scheduled to emerge from a 99-day hibernation on Dec. 6, then gear up for a six-month Pluto encounter that peaks with the first-ever close flyby of the mysterious dwarf planet on July 14, 2015...

The Pluto encounter technically begins on Jan. 15, 2015. Over the next six months, the spacecraft will use seven different science instruments to study the geology and topography of Pluto and its largest moon, Charon, map the two objects' surface compositions and temperatures, study Pluto's atmosphere and search for undiscovered moons and rings in the dwarf planet system, among other things, team members said...

Hey, so I'm in a pop-alt-punk-folk-prog band called "Affable Dregs" and we have a new album coming out, titled "Vicious Turnips Always Taste Most Delicious." We'd really appreciate your support!

10 weeks before July 14, 2015 is when New Horizons pictures will be as good as the best pictures from earth.  From that point onward, it will really get interesting.  Here is a timeline:  http://lh4.ggpht.com/-421Ju4wn0cw/Ub58PcKQ0DI/AAAAAAAAFpo/DmgOOLJTQx4/s1600-h/NH%252520pluto_geometry_large2%25255B4%25255D.jpg

Wouldn't it be amazing if they found a continent-sized spider nesting on the dwarf planet?

It would really get interesting if they found Jimmy Hoffa.  That would certainly make the news. Wink Tongue

Maybe we can name one of the possible new moons Snow White,  that'll make you happy.
