This video may seem kind of lame, but I've watched it so many times. There's nothing particularly interesting about what is shown on the surface level--a bunch of people clapping. We don't even get to see the new images of Pluto that they are cheering about.
But there's something else--something wonderful about seeing people enjoying their passions this fully! They are all so happy to be able to see Pluto and to find that their mission was a success. And that makes me kind of giddy.
Go Team Horizons!! I'm so stoked about the progress the team has made, and can't wait to see what else we will learn! I love you, Pluto!
@danidee I watched another video of when they were making their first contact with the craft during it's flyby and everytime they confirmed a set of data started downloading successfully they would cheer and clap. This went on for like 20 minutes!! So great to see their hard work payin goff.
It must be a REALLY exciting time to be a rocket scientist. Or well. A space one?
You know you've got a room full of insanely passionate people when something as 'surface simple' as looking at a picture can bring them all to a standing ovation. They worked hard for this day!
