I wanted to thank the John Spencer, the New Horizons team and the gang here at UMSF for the spectacular flyby last year. With all of your permissions, I created this humble poster to showcase the work we did here at UMSF. I sent three copies to Alan Stern, for a surprise gift to John Spencer and the New Horizons team.

There is a bit of intent to how the poster was designed. I wanted something that could visually show the contributions UMSF can make (hint hint ESA), as well as a timeline of the photos from New Horizons that were processed here. The timeline starts in the top left with Bjorn's Jupiter comparison, and spirals clockwise around in order of posting. I tried to include as many pictures from as many contributors as possible.
The best location I've found to order it so far is largeformatposters.com Their high gloss posters are available in large sizes, and are much better than www.kodakgallery.com, with no trimming of the edges, higher contrast, and better details. The poster looks exactly like the file on my monitor. The file is 300 dpi, and makes a beautiful 16"x20" poster, and can probably go larger. If you are interested in ordering your own print, email me at richardhendricks at yahoo dot com and I'll send you a JPG. I have ordered a print from CafePress, but it's a week behind schedule in arriving here.
Here are two versions for a 1280x1024 desktop. I like the vertical version better, because it keeps the left side clean where the icons reside.

I want to thank Doug and Emily for their suggestions and words of encouragement, and Alan for granting permission to use the New Horizons logo, and of course John for the opportunity to participate.
We are all so fortunate to live in such a golden age of space exploration.
