New Horizon Pluto Flyby
In less than 12 hours New Horizons will make its closest approach to Pluto. Much of its instrumentation is fixed so the antenna wont be pointing to Earth. New Horizons will start beaming data back to Earth at 1 kbps while it still does science, which will upgrade to 2kbps once it powers down its science instruments. It will take about 16 months to send all the data back to Earth.
