The man who discovered Pluto is currently on his way there!

More specifically, his ashes are flying towards the dwarf (former) planet. Clyde Tombaugh’s ashes are traveling within the New Horizons spacecraft on a goal to pass Pluto by 2015!

The container Tombaugh’s ashes are in inscribes what would have been on the man’s tombstone including his discovery of Pluto and his family. So next time you look up at the sky, squint hard and see if you can find New Horizons and the ashes of Clyde Tombaugh!
