2015 Took Us to Pluto and Beyond!
TheSpacewriter went to Pluto in 2015. It was a helluva ride!
It’s that time of year again: time to celebrate the past 365 days of life on planet Earth. The New Year officially starts on January 1, 2016 and with it, the next generation of science and astronomy news events and stories.
I’ve been doing TheSpacewriter blog since 2002, but began my Web presence in grad school in the early 1990s. I’ve been writing about space and astronomy for ever longer than that, and each year, I find events and discoveries that really are exciting!
Every year all the space bloggers suddenly get the urge to post their favorite pictures and space/astronomy news stories “in review”. I’m no different — there are stories I really palpitated over this year, ones that I kept writing about over and over. So, let’s look at a few of the stories that boosted MY jets this year.
Who Ordered THAT!?!
