   A note on speeds and distances, if the needle on your boggle-o-meter hasn't wrapped round the pin yet. New Horizons was launched nine years ago; it goes past Pluto in another couple of months; and it still has to travel about 3/4 the distance from the Earth to the Sun. Pretty good camera shooting.
