That reporter needs to learn to pronounce "Kuiper." It rhymes with "piper." Or maybe he said "Kepler," the wrong astronomer if we're talking about the belt of objects beyond Neptune.
His pronunciation stood out for me because I wasn't sure how Kuiper's name was pronounced until online dictionaries with sound clips came along. I never was much good at interpreting the strange code dictionaries use for showing how words are pronounced.
I noticed that too.
The long-awaited flyby is coming in really fast. And it may be the last of the truly outer-outer planet explorations in our lifetime.
The resulting pictures should keep scientists busy for a few entire careers.
Yep. I think it's 30 days from now. I hope it's close enough for some really sharp pictures - I don't think I've read about what the expectations are. Cassini-like?
