The New Horizons mission reached Pluto last year and began sending back the first pieces of amazing data. Lowell Observatory’s Dr. Will Grundy came on the show back in September to relate these initial observations. Now he stops back, via Skype, to let us know the newest word.

From the observation of geological features previously unseen in the solar system to variations in icy surface composition over the surface of the planet, listen in as Will talks about the newest data, and the ultimate plans for the mission.
