It is interesting to see the image sharpen during the full rotation as New Horizons gets closer to Pluto.

It probably depends on how much of a historian he is - there's a lot of stuff I'm glad that we found because there are some first hand and second hand accounts of things that provide a new angle and more colorful details beyond what the history books or old newspaper clippings decided to include.

 

Dittos. I burned out and tuned out the artificially hyped up melodrama of the Kardashian bunch the same day I first heard of them. Of course it's much like trying to tune out a jackhammer operating out in the alley at 5 AM on a Sunday morning. To completely avoid them, one has to go totally off the grid and live in a cave somewhere, unfortunately.

So much of the news is just publicity, I understand the need for it, but don't give one unimportant subject so much attention.

In any event the real story on Pluto is a good one and like any real news, what is happening won't be known for a while.  So perhaps some nice juicy summary will come out in a year or two.
