2015 Planetary Exploration Crossword Puzzle
July 19, 2015

News services have been busy lately reporting on the most recent feat of America's national space agency's resounding success with its interplanetary space probe's closest encounter with our solar system's most remote [minor] planet. Prior to the flyby, even the most powerful Earth- and space-based telescopes could never resolve more than a few lightly contrasted splotches on the celestial orb's surface, and its largest moon was a few pixels worth of indeterminate light. All that changed on July 14, 2015. We now have, for the first time ever, high resolution images of the surface, and are in the process of collection terabits worth of additional physical data from onboard instruments. No doubt many Ph.D.'s will be earned through assimilation and study of this information.

I will be glad to create a special edition crossword for your newspaper, newsletter, etc.
