Brian May's "New Horizons" New Years Message

Brian May, guitarist for Queen, is also an astrophysicist who is involved in NASA's New Horizons probe to Pluto and the outer solar system. New Horizons is scheduled to be passing by an object in that region of space during new years, and sending back information. May created a song celebrating the New Horizons mission, and I can't think of a better way to ring in the new year!  Happy New Year to all my readers, and keep your dreams high!!
