5 December 2014. It's been a long journey, but it's nearly over: New Horizons is just about ready to begin its science mission to Pluto, Charon, Styx, Nix, Kerberos, and Hydra. The spacecraft has spent most of its decade-long trip napping in a hibernation mode that required little energy from either the spacecraft or its human controllers, but this snoozy phase ends this weekend.
