Day 27

Lately I've been working on displaying which spacecraft are near or on the surface of the other planets. Showing where they are in real time is beyond my ability, but you will be able to see the orbits they are in. Mars (shown above) is a busy place: three orbiters and two functioning rovers. The yellow and red lines show where it's two moons are.

NASA's Eyes on the Solar System program is being a great help for checking that I'm displaying things correctly. I highly recommend it.

I've also begun work on a model of the New Horizons spacecraft which will fly past Pluto in July 2015.
