#1532: New Horizons
[[Two people stand at a mission control terminal.]]
One: We made it! After all these years,
is finally revealing the surface of Pluto!
[[On the black screen, a small grayish circle appears.]]
[[It grows slightly larger, and a differentiation of colors can be seen, white and gray.]]
[[Larger still, now landmasses and water are visible.]]
[[It is now large enough to see that we are looking at the Earth, with Africa, Europe, and some of Asia visible.]]
[[One person is still looking at the screen while the other is walking away.]]
One: Ok, who did the calculations for the Jupiter slingshot maneuver?
