Excerpt from December Guide Star, Eric Fischer Editor

The January 8, 2016 AAAP meeting takes place at Allegheny Observatory, not the Carnegie Science Center. Our guest speaker will be Mark Kochte who will present the latest findings from NASA’s New Horizons Mission to Pluto. Mark is a Mission Analyst (among several titles) at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. Naturally, the Jan. 2016 Guide Star will have much more on Mr. Kochte’s lecture.
