So Emily Lakdawalla made a typo for once? Obviously nobody is perfect. At the end of this blog post:

It's incredibly easy to suffer from a typo, especially after very long days. The best thing anyone can do is send a quick e-mail to the author pointing it out, so it can be corrected.

So yeah, this is a good thread, I'm not going to trim good posts for the sake of "OMG, UPDATES!". So long as it's on topic, this thread works fine.

Top photos from Blackstar. Must have been fun to be there during these historic events!

Friday is supposed to be the next NASA public event, but everyone keep an eye out for items via the usual channels.

I don't see the typo unless you're conflating images being downlinked with images being released.

There's also this tweet:

I asked several people today about plans for New Horizons image releases tomorrow. As of 6pm there were no plans for any releases tomorrow.

It was fun. Except for the magician.

My car even made it onto Physics Today's Twitter feed:

Here is the Charon image. Note the depression with the raised center in the upper left of the box. Is that an irregular or partially-lit crater with a central peak? A volcano?

For comparison, here is a photo of Tycho Crater on our own Moon.

Is there a glitch with NASA Eyes or is the rotation of NH intentional?

Edit: First time I've seen "Target: None".  Nominal?

2nd Edit: Back to cruise mode I imagine.

Make sure you tune into NASA TV today. I've just been in a room to see one of the photos that will be presented. Two people cheered. One person cried. One person fainted.

AWESOME!!!!!

And just so everyone knows, that's at 1pm ET:

http://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-to-release-new-pluto-images-science-findings-at-july-17-nasa-tv-briefing



"NASA will hold a media briefing at 1 p.m. EDT Friday, July 17, to reveal new images of Pluto and discuss new science findings from Tuesday’s historic flyby.

The briefing will be held in James E. Webb Auditorium at NASA Headquarters, located at 300 E St. SW in Washington. NASA Television and the agency's website will carry the briefing live.

Participants in the briefing will be:

    Jim Green, director of Planetary Science at NASA Headquarters in Washington
    Alan Stern, New Horizons principal investigator at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in Boulder, Colorado
    Randy Gladstone, New Horizons co-investigator at SwRI in San Antonio
    Jeffrey Moore, New Horizons co-investigator at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California
    Fran Bagenal, New Horizons co-investigator, University of Colorado, Boulder
Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our rights & freedoms, and for those injured, visible or otherwise, in that fight.

Assuming legit, I'll place my bet on active cryovolcanism.

I'm pretty sure this guy is legit but I also know that the kind of thing that could make a Nasa scientist faint may be very different to the kind of thing that would make me faint so I'm not going to get too excited yet. It sounds incredibly intriguing though!

It's that grandstanding PAO again, so we may end up with a 10 minute speech from him again.

Spacecraft is doing well - Alan. Exited nine day close approach. Now in departure mode.

We have some big news.
