Hi guys !

it's a bit off topic, but still related somehow : we will soon have pictures of Kerberos,
one of the Pluto's moon ! Anyway, from a distance of 7 billion kms, at a speed of 49 000 km/h,
transmitted from the spaceship New Horizons at 1kb/s (yes, incredible how those guys are able
to guarantee such a bandwith that far from earth when you see how bad can be your mobile phone
communication when not close to an antenna...), here is some picture of Pluto :

I'm thrilled by what human beings can achieve. Too bad that we spend so much intelligence,
money and time to make war instead of exploring the world...

Enjoy !
