from the New Horizons Facebook page, this is how NOT to report science....


It's a perfect way to represent speed for the general public.

A very cool visualization of the explored solar system objects from the WSJ... but not error free:

(Hint: something about Jupiter's moons...)

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

That entire thing is terrible. It's arguably when the photographing happened, not the first photos.... but ... Proteus was imaged by Cassini in 1989??!? What the hell? I know Cassini has been around awhile, but that was 8 years before launch.

So Dactyl has left Ida behind and is now orbiting Jupiter. Well, that's an interesting development for sure.

If it is the most recent imaging, then we can note NH imaged Io...

I tweeted to one of the graphic creators; hopefully he'll take notice. It's a beautiful graphic, but it needs to be accurate!!!

Probably hitched a ride with Gaspra.

Now, the question is whether Annefrank hitched a ride with New Horizons or whether it was the other way around...

From The Times (London) yesterday: "It (the Ultima Thule flyby) will be the latest chapter in an already remarkable mission that took New Horizons on the first exploration of Neptune and its moons in 2015"

To be fair, New Horizons did actually image Neptune (and Triton) in 2014, from the range of a mere 4 billion kilometres.... wink.gif

Good luck all!
