Stephen discusses the latest news from 4.67 billion miles away.
Stephen talks about the Pluto photos and how we will keep getting photos from the spacecraft because of the distance transmission is less than 56 kb per second. Another reason transmission is slow is because they had to make the fastest craft that they could (so that it would get there before the people on the science team died). This meant the craft was small. Only big enough to do the job. The high resolution pictures will be transmitted to the end of 2016.
