Pluto shows two different faces as New Horizons closes in [Jul. 3rd, 2015|01:11 pm]

Here is my latest article for "Spaceflight Insider" discussing Pluto's "two faces," detection of methane on its surface, measurements taken from Earth earlier this week when Pluto occulted a star, and the New Horizons' team decision to stick with its original path through the Pluto system after failing to detect any major hazards on that path.

Anyone interested in Pluto should take the time to read this fantastic article. Dr. Philip Metzger is a planetary scientist at the University of Central Florida and recently retired from NASA's New Horizons communication team. In his articles, he has consistently made some of the strongest arguments I have read in nearly nine years in support of Pluto's planet status.

"So start calling Pluto a planet right now. Add to the consensus, because that's how science makes progress, by one person at a time being convinced of the truth and adopting it. Science is not decided by votes and you are not required to submit to nonsense."

Oh Pluto - Werth, Lavin [Jun. 23rd, 2015|01:45 pm]

New Horizons is an exciting science mission, but it and the small planet it is visiting have always been something more, something transcendent, something that has and continues to inspire art in all its forms. This beautiful song written by folk musician Craig Werth, called "Oh, Pluto," reflects the sense of wonder, mystery, and fascination that both Pluto and New Horizons continue to generate. As Universe Today writer Nancy Atkinson says, "Oh, Pluto will tug at your heartstrings."
