New Horizons in 2010

Oftentimes we are so engrossed in our Earthly affairs that we are unable to admire the big picture. So in 2010, as you vie for advantage and superior position in the human Rat Race, remember to stay connected to the Universe and do something positive for the greater good – who knows where this journey leads? Picture this: The fastest man-made object ever built, the Pluto-bound New Horizons probe, ripping through space at around 31,000 miles per hour – about 40 times the speed of sound – is now about 1.527 billion miles from Earth, closer to Pluto than home! This astonishing distance has been accomplished in just a little under four years after its launch. This craft will be the first to sail by Pluto, the planet or dwarf planet or plutoid, and on to the other objects lurking in the Kuiper Belt on the outer fringes of the solar system.

“Today, 29 Dec 2009, New Horizons crossed a milestone boundary– henceforth we’re now closer to Pluto than to Earth. Go New Horizons!” the mission’s controllers tweeted Tuesday.

The New Horizons is not an orbiter; it will fly past the former planet like an arrow and continue into the unknown. However, during nine days around July 14, 2015 when the craft approaches and then passes by Pluto, it will capture and send back to us approximately 4.5 gigabytes of data.

Having accomplished its primary mission, the probe will continue moving away from the sun, just like Pioneer and Voyager missions before it.

Think of that when you face what may seem to you like insurmountable odds – if we can visit Pluto, surely you can handle your business and reign in your worldly problems! Best wishes and best of luck in 2010 from The Cornerstones of World Business Team!!
