I was impressed by the upcoming flyby of Pluto this week that was launched almost 10 years ago by NASA. “This is our one shot at Pluto in our lifetime,” according to mission scientist Hal Weaver. The probe is traveling so fast that a collision with a dust particle as small as one millimeter in diameter could end the mission. If the flyby works, in a few hours the scientists expect the probe to collect so much data that it will take 16 months to transmit the findings 3 billion miles back to earth. They’ll know later this week if it worked.
Caught up in the day-to-day, what do you have going that could create immense value ten years from now? Are you willing to take the risk to see that idea launch? http://www.wsj.com/articles/pluto-is-set-to-come-into-clearer-focus-1436551199
