The New Horizons space probe is set to begin flying through the Pluto system on July 14th 2015. It will fly about 7,800 miles above it at about 52,000 miles per hour after a journey of over 9 years and about 3 billion miles. A final course adjustment has just been completed and all went perfectly. Already, we are seeing strange bumps on the planet which seems to have an unusual brownish yellow color. Methane has already been sensed on the surface. The article from CBS is the best one I've found so far because it has a detailed graphic and timeline of the spacecraft's trajectory near Pluto.
NASA has also published this media page with related and latest news columns and television coverage coming up. http://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-announces-television-coverage-media-activities-for-pluto-flyby. I've read that CBS will televise the event as well as National Geographic and NASA Television. It takes about 4 1/2 hours for light to reach Earth from Pluto and I've also read that the data stream may be pretty slow. Reading between the lines, it seems like most of the meaty coverage will be perhaps half a day later an on from the actual fly by. New Horizons has already given us better images and more information that we have ever had before on Pluto.
Visa and MasterCard confirmed that they have cut off payment services for Backpage.com, an online platform for people to advertise goods and services. This was in response to public pressure from Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart, who wrote to executives at both of the payment processors urging them to cut off transactions to Backpage’s adult services. The two companies responded by quickly shutting down payments for the entire site.
