A worthwhile journey to Pluto

July 16, 2015

This morning the following conversation took place between my 7 year old granddaughter and me:


Is it just me or does that light-colored area shaped like Pluto the dog’s head?

Me: “Hey, did you see the pictures of Pluto?”
Maddy: “The dog?”
Me: “No, the planet.”
Maddy: “Oh, no.”
Me: “Do you know it’s 3.6 BILLION miles away?”
Maddy: “Did you go there?”
Me: “Uh, no. I had to work.”

As Doug Adams said, “Space is big.” I try, but it’s so daunting to get my head around things like 3,670,904,970.2 (that’s billion) miles, 30,000 miles per hour, and that after traveling for 9 years, it took only 2 minutes for the New Horizons spacecraft to fly by the entire diameter of Pluto… To get a sense of what 3,670,904,970.2 miles covers, check out the tediously accurate scale model of the solar system. This was an incredible achievement for the New Horizons team.
