First off, congratulations to the New Horizons’ team on an outstanding mission. I was watching the New Horizons press conference and there were a lot of great questions about space and science but my favorite type of question is “what’s next?” Actually the exact question was “when can we go back again?”

Alan Stern took this question and he had the best response ever: “I have been secretly working on a lander.” The best part, I think he was serious. Or maybe I misinterpreted that exchange but I thought it was awesome.
