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?
