The Mars Generation


"EVER since we first began exploring space, every generation has had a craft to transport their dreams into space. We have seen the Apollo Era, the Shuttle Era, and now we are ready to see the Orion Era. My generation, the Mars Generation, will make it happen. It's our time, we are ready." - ASTRONAUT ABBY

The First Pluto Photos From New Horizons’ Massive Data Dump

They’re here! Last Saturday, New Horizons started the intensive process of sending data from its July flyby of the Pluto system back to Earth. During its closest approach—about 7,800 miles from Pluto’s surface—the spacecraft collected tens of gigabits of data. That includes photos, spectra, and atmospheric readings. Now that data is coming back bit by bit.

Like, literally. The probe is so far away that it can only send data at a rate of around 1 to 4 kilobits per second. The probe has been sending back lower data-rate information from its energetic particle, solar wind and space dust instruments since late July, but Saturday marked the beginning of a new, year-long download of hi-res images and the like.

That should be plenty of time to clear the hard drives before New Horizons does its next flyby. Did you hear? The little probe will reach Kuiper Belt Object 2014 MU69 in January 2019.
