"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

"We are extremely proud to have the NASA's New Horizons mission make Goddard the first stop in its journey to the last planet," said Dr. Ed Weiler, GSFC Center Director. "The New Horizons mission to Pluto is an historic journey of exploration to unlock secrets from a mysterious planet so distant that the Sun is just a bright star in the sky."
Despite being within range of the Hubble telescope, little is known about Pluto other than the fact that it has an elliptical orbit. Although too far away to be noticeably affected by the Sun's rays, the Pluto system is one of the few that would be considered a "highlight" for colonists as it's surface contains some methane and it's lunar neighbor Charon is suspected as having water ice upon it's surface.

It is an extreme pleasure to read this comment Sherlock. I love space, and it would be so fun to go in to space, especially Mars, and observe its weather patterns. Who knows, maybe there is intelligent life out there. Only time will tell!
