Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Godspeed New Horizons

For those of you who don't know, the NASA New Horizons mission is scheduled to depart on its mission to Pluto today. This will be the first probe intended to visit Pluto and, as a result, all the space nuts are pretty excited. The Washington Post has some good coverage of the mission, so I don't think I need to say much except for good luck.

As of this moment, launch is scheduled for 1:24:00 PM U.S Eastern Standard Time. If you want to watch history being made, feel free to make use of the launch website.

Thanks for pointing that out, Drek. The scheduled launch date had slipped my mind.
