Want to see pictures from Pluto? Go to New York! - English Conversation Lesson

I have always been interested in Astronomy.  Instead of rock stars on my wall, as a child, I had a poster with all the stats on the solar system, this was before any amount about Pluto was discovered.  Now, the New Horizons spacecraft is beaming back pictures, I might have to upgrade my poster!
