Nice to hear of the capabilities of the Subaru telescope. Is there any chance of the Vera Rubin (LSST) telescope starting to come online in a useful way for NH in the next couple of years?

We started to look at that just a couple of weeks back! Stay tuned.

New PI Perspective gives details on the continuing search for a second flyby:

http://pluto.jhuapl.edu/News-Center/PI-Per...tive_03_23_2021

Also this teasing hint "And note that in mid-April, we'll have a news release, with some very special images we've taken from our perch so far away in the Kuiper Belt, so keep an eye out for that!"

I have some educated guesses about what these might be....
