New image of Pluto from the New Horizons probe ...

All of the probe's information comes back very slowly, however.

The vast distance to Pluto - some 4.7bn km - means bit rates are extremely slow, and it will take a full 16 months for everything seen in the next few days to trickle back to Earth.

Closest approach to Pluto on Tuesday is set for exactly 11:49:59 GMT (12:49:59 BST; 07:49:59 EDT).

Robert Preston getting very pessimistic about the Greek situation ... and if he is getting pessimistic, then so am I.

We are now in a situation where IRREPARABLE damage has been done.

My predictions are -

1) Euro to fall a lot further. Because confidence in a united front of Euro countries has GONE. Tonight ! For the first time !

2) Greece to remain in Euro zone for as bit longer ... because as RP shows the alternative is both a nightmare and unplanned.

3) Massive shortages of cash, medicine and food in Greece.

4) Things could improve in a week ... but ONLY if the new Greek government capitulates totally ... and that's not likely !


BUT ... What do fellow Googlies think ??❔❓❔❓

Fixed my original train.... but every time I put the bodywork back on ... Loose connection.

Maybe I'll just run it with no bodywork ?

Isn't it about time that all UK citizens in Tunisia who wish to get back get some ASSISTANCE ?

My understanding is that this is NOT an easy operation ... But that more needs to be done quickly, before dissatisfaction and despondency set in.
