New Horizons is go!!! Launch was at 2:00 P.M. EST and boy was it moving! There goes the fastest rocket ever launched.

Next stop, Pluto... well ok, Jupiter for a gravity assist slingshot, then Pluto.

So, now we just have to wait 9 years to finally get some good pictures of Pluto. (And I imagine, some nice ones of Jupiter on the way by...)

For more information, check out NASA's site.

Get a snowball and photograph it against a black background. That's what we'll see of Pluto in 9 years' time.

Our tax dollars at work...
