New Horizons

by John Hambrock

Those of you who read Edison Lee regularly know I like to write about space as much as possible. Stories of space exploration have always fascinated me, beginning almost 38 years ago when NASA launched the Voyager 1 probe. Today’s post is a reflection of that day, as well as a celebration of yesterday’s milestone “New Horizons” flyby of Pluto.

I wrote the attached strip while visiting the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum with my wife Anne and fellow cartoonist Greg Walker. One reader kindly wrote to me after the strip ran informing me that three-legged tables don’t wobble. That may be the case on earth, but do we really know how these things behave in other galaxies? I think we need to send out another probe to try and find out.
