New Horizons-- Oh, No!

The New Horizons space probe may have shit the bed.

The spacecraft is nine days away from its closest point of approach to the Pluto-Charon dual-planet system. It's not now collecting science data. If they can't get it working, there will be no do-over.

I know of no proposals for another probe to Pluto. If New Horizons fails, we may not get another chance within the lifetime of anyone reading this.
