I wonder do we will have or not have photos from Pluto, today it will make flyby…

The Phone Home signals should be arriving at 8:02pm CST.

The fact that we can estimate from that distance the time a signal should come back to us is remarkable. Can we please invent warp drives already :smiley:

I wouldn’t call it estimating. It’s pretty dang precise! 3 billion miles away and we can pretty much nail it down to a few seconds. That’s impressive.

Indeed

Pretty mind boggling data coming in. Ice Mountains and geologic activity. Amazing stuff.
