Nine years ago, when NASA launched its New Horizons probe... the housing bubble hadn't burst, Tiger Woods was still at the top of his game and Pluto had not yet been officially downgraded to a dwarf planet. Regardless, the little probe is FINALLY about to reach the little rock - and some scientists are very excited. Emily Lakdawalla is the Senior Editor at The Planetary Society and she joins A Martinez in studio to chat.

She's also been writing about the probe over at The Planetary Society's website.
