New Horizons is go!

With any luck, the New Horizons - NASA's mission to Pluto and its satellites - will be taking off on board an Atlas V rocket in less than half an hour. NASA have a continuously updating webpage showing the current status if (like me) you can't watch the launch. Everything looks good so far, the fuel has all been loaded and there appear to be no problems. Fingers crossed!
