    Can't wait until it gets to Uranus
    A Ferrari is a high maintenance chick, you spend money regardless of what you do with her. You can baby the C63, or slap on all seasons, and you won't be spending anything but yearly maintenance. Of course that's like dating a stripper and refusing to fuck her, which would make you gay.

    Yeah very excited to see what they get next week. I never knew Pluto was reddish... always figured it was some sort of grey ice ball.

    You need a solar system map for Christmas. You seem to be looking for Uranus in all the wrong places.

    Uranus is unremarkable.

    It's going to be some time before I imagine Pluto as a small red ball instead of a small grey ball, haha. Old habits die hard!

    I read that it will take 16 months for all the data to be sent back to earth due to the distance and shitty upload rate due to it. Can't wait to see the pictures.

    Ya it's too bad the craft couldn't slow down enough to orbit Pluto and get some real detailed photos. New Horizons is going to do the fastest ricer fly by ever

    The fact that humans were able to do this is very impressive.

    Less than 1 million miles to go now. New Horizons is on its own now. No more communications until after the fly-by. Looking forward to the results!

    The orbital path of Pluto's moons is pretty cool!

    Wow.

    In astronomical time, it's not going to very long before a few of those bodies are going to be "doing it".

    Many have just recently. The proof being the needy grand kids causing the irregular orbits

    They may be irregular, but they're likely stable orbits.
