  1. OK. Stop the presses. Just check out that trajectory. I mean compare it to the elaborate gravitational assists of missions like Rosetta – it’s like comparing a ballerina and a complex beautiful dance to to a direct knock-out punch from the fist of a prize fighter – in this case the mighty Atlas V. Point the thing at Pluto and FIRE!! Freaking awesome!!!
