New Horizons Principal Investigator Alan Stern snaps a photo of the truck that is about to carry NASA's Pluto-bound spacecraft from Goddard Space Flight Center - where it recently completed space-environment tests - to Andrews Air Force Base, Md., on Sept. 23. From Andrews, the spacecraft was flown aboard an Air Force C-17 cargo plane to Kennedy Space Center, Fla., to begin final preparations for its January 2006 launch.
