September meeting

Tonight is the September meeting at St John’s UMC at 15th and University. Tom Heisey will give a 3rd presentation on the New Horizon’s mission. On Labor Day, the mission started sending high resolution, uncompressed images of the close encounter with Pluto. The probe was very busy in the two or three days it flew past Pluto! Thanks to the vast distances to Earth, the transmission is slow and it will take more than a year to deliver all of the data and images to Earthbound scientists!
