After the busiest July of our lives, the New Horizons team members have finally caught up on sleep. A few of us have even had a chance to take vacations. It’s good that we’re rested up, because an onslaught of new data from Pluto is about to begin.
Right now, 95% of the data obtained during the July 14 flyby is still stored on the spacecraft. After a quiet August, new images will start flowing down to Earth again on Saturday, We will get a few images almost every day.
