(Due to the WordPress global change of embedding an mp3 player rather than showing the URL, I have added spaces in the URL to fool the system. You will need to copy & paste the URL into your browser, getting rid of the extra spaces I added to avoid the embedded player. WordPress tells me they are working on a solution to this problem)

John Batchelor and I welcomed back Dr. Alan Stern, PI for the New Horizons Pluto flyby mission. We talked about New Horizons, the fact that all 7 instruments worked perfectly during the flyby, that another mountain range has been found on Pluto, and that about 98% of the images were still on the spacecraft including all the high resolution images. We talked about Pluto’s moons, especially Charon, the detected heat source, and the Pluto atmosphere. Pluto’s nitrogen was also a discussion topic.
